Not enough rain for our porridge ?

Farmer Richard Styles in Suffolk has just written an article on www.eadt.co.uk about how the lack of rain could effect his porridge yields.

”Well next year I hope to feed roughly about 14,027 folk every day, seven days a week with a healthy bowl of porridge with my oat crop. If my yields are down 50% then about 7000 people have to eat imported oats each day. It really is that simple.”
