Barley challenge.
Supreme champion inter-club malting barley grower William Mack will be defending his title against the best sample from a Stalham Farmers' Club member. He triumphed earlier this year with a sample of Propino, which was judged by Bob King, of Crisp Malting Group. Mr Mack, of Hempstead Hall, near Holt, won the Holt & District Farmers' Club championship with the same variety again. Entries from Stalham members may be delivered to Adams & Howling, which would please our vice-chairman, Chris Borrett, or delivered to Neal Sands at Sands Sprayers or members of the Frontier team. And, entries of wheat for the club's cup will be most welcome too. There is no entry fee!

Daisy is favourite.
A favourite variety of potatoes proved a hit with visitors to the HarFest at Norwich Cathedral. Tim Papworth brought a load of a crisping variety, Daisy, and managed to raise £316.52 for the East Anglia Air Ambulance. A grower for Kettle Foods, he had an odd surplus tonne of this variety to bring to the third annual event, run by the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association. And by coincidence, his younger daughter is called Daisy.
