The Early Bird Catches the Worm – Avoid A Drought This Summer

Be Prepared – Have your own reliable water supply by the Summer.

In the fall of last year I wrote about the devastating effect the drought was having on crop yields across the UK. I have copied in an excerpt of that post below.

Here we are on the first day of March with a message to farmers and anybody else who is reliant upon rainfall for their business, to consider a waterwell installation. Let’s take a quick look at the benefits of having a water borehole:

Benefits of a Water Borehole include:

  • Huge cost savings and reduction in business overheads.
  • Short payback on your investment.
  • Constant, sustainable water supply
  • More efficient and economical.
  • Consistent water flow, constant pressure.
  • No license required from a borehole extraction less than 20,000 litres per day.
  • Independent from your local water authority resulting in no restrictions or mains leak problems.

Poor Crop Yields – Farmers Report on the Extent of the Problem

Farmers are facing serious crop yield losses this harvest as the prolonged dry spell is piling pressure on crops, especially on light land. Following a dry spring, a lack of rainfall in June could severely hit crop yields. If the dry summer continues, crops losses of 5-10% are widely predicted – with some farmers fearing much bigger losses.

Taken from Farmer’s Weekly 28 June 2018.

Indeed, as  I write we are moving into September 2018, and sadly we can say that the situation has far from improved. It’s not uncommon to hear  farmers now reporting of a 100% crop loss:

“It probably cost €50,000 to put this crop in the ground,” he says. “There should be €90,000 to €100,000 worth of broccoli here. And we probably won’t see any of it.”
