Derek Dyson, R & PM Dyson, Hull, East Yorkshire
"The winter linseed harvested like a dream. My best field did 3.96t/ha and the worst 3.50t/ha. I have 80- 120 ha planned for 2016"
Tim Parker, Parker Farms (Bassingbourn) Ltd, Duxford, Cambridgeshire
"We've grown Winter Linseed twice now and this year we cut our crop on 23rd July. It was easy to cut, even though it was a dull day. It yielded over 1 tonne/acre and we will be growing again next year"
Eric Lewis, E & M Lewis, Dymock, Gloucestershire
"I have grown Winter Linseed for 6 years now and am growing again next year. This year we started cutting on 20th July. It is very easy to harvest, is an excellent break crop and an excellent entry for wheat."
Roger King, R J King & Sons, Taunton, Somerset
