Back Ukraine farmers

Impossible to imagine the day before the Russians invaded, many were having a normal day, still believing that the worse wouldn’t happen.
We can’t really know how awful it must be for the men left behind defending the country, their families sheltering from air attacks or the refugees fleeing to surrounding countries. But our thoughts are with them and even the families in Russia whose relatives have been dragged into this conflict. And what of the Ukrainian farmers?  Ollie Martin our Arable and Grain Business Manager writes: 'I can’t help but think also about the Ukrainian farmers, keepers of Europe’s ‘bread-basket’. The reality must be that their ability to look after winter crops in the ground has been seriously affected and the chances of successfully establishing spring crops impacted further. One would imagine that even if the business at farm level is able to carry on practically, logistics and infrastructure for supply of seed, pesticides, fertiliser and even fuel will have been severely impacted. Labour too may be in short supply as many sign up to join the fight.'

Spring is on the way!

What defines spring to you? Is it the first sign of bulbs pushing up through the soil, buds and early blossom highlighted by deep blue clear skies or renewed birdsong? With a little less rain and the slightly warmer weather, nature is starting to stir.  For the arable team spring is a busy time because the established crops now need fertiliser, crop protection and organic manure.
