Soissons Winter Wheat

Around you, you will see fields of Soissons winter wheat, replacing some of the Winter Linseed planted last year.

This is sown late into the Autumn, often around October and still matures early, ready to be harvested by July or August.

You will see each field is bordered with a margin where no crops are grown, and hedgerows. These are vital links between different habitats and help to reduce soil erosion. To find out more just how essential hedgerows are across the landscape, click here.
