THE UK has suffered through some of its worst test weight results in wheat on record, as a result of a wet and cold summer that disrupted harvest.

An official survey in Britain found there was widespread downgrading of wheat, primarily due to low test weights because of harvest rain.

The report found that the average British wheat test weight was 69.6kg/hl (the lowest on record.

The figure was down on last year's 78.7kg/hl, and the falling numbers average was 237 seconds.
