Wheat production exceeds all norms

In the best Stalinist manner, DEFRA informs us that there has been 'A Record British wheat harvest' and further that "Results show a record wheat harvest of 17.5 million tonnes, an increase of 32 per cent on 2007, mainly caused by a record yield of 8.4 tonnes per hectare, combined with a 13 per cent increase in wheat area to 2.1 million hectares. Excellent planting conditions in autumn 2007, as well as strong cereal prices and the reduction to 0 per cent set-aside, contributed to the high wheat area planted".

Much like the crowing cock who thought he caused the sun to rise, that horny-handed daughter of toil farming minister Jane Kennedy (background - social work and union activism) seems to want to claim the credit. Erm, why?

I would be looking forward to the production figures from Massey Ferguson, but for the fact they do not manufacture in these parts any more.
