Wet weather rains havoc for the agriculture industry.

Talking to our customers the wet weather has affected everyone from north to the south of the UK with no escape for anyone, except some of our elevated customers on chalk.  Field work is impossible and harvesting of crops still in the ground is causing financial strain and defeat for some.  

 

We highlight the fact that most of the agricultural land running alongside rivers, although deemed as flood plain, can still be part of the cropping routine of our farmers and their sacrifice is great as used as a prevention for the towns and villages that are saved from flooding, this must not be forgotten by the environmental authorities. 

 

As we know, February 2020 has been the wettest February on record for UK, England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and the second wettest (behind February 1990) for Scotland. It has also been the fifth wettest of any calendar month in a series from 1862 behind only October 1903 (227mm), December 2015 (217mm), November 2009 (215mm), and December 1929 (213mm).

 

We are hopeful that things maybe on the turn and the long range weather forecast is looking a little better and we all have our fingers crossed. 

Challenging times for all our agricultural friends and our thoughts are with you and all those who have had flooded properties too and hope that you can all look forward to better times ahead.
