Farming at Worlaby Farms, near Louth, Mr Lamyman beat the world record by 5% with a crop of winter feed wheat variety Reflection. Launched earlier this year, it is a variety available to growers for planting this autumn.

Mr Lamyman’s 16.5 t/ha Reflection yield, which was adjusted to 15% moisture, also smashed his own previous UK record set on the farm last year by 2 t/ha, he says, with the crop also producing an impressive 83 kg/hl specific weight.
