The largest single UK wheat shipment in history will set sail to Vietnam this month.
70,000 tonnes of feed wheat is currently being loaded at the Port of Immingham on the east coast onto the vessel. The shipment has taken the crop yield from 18,000 acres (7,333 ha) from UK wheat growers across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
When she sets sail in early July, the journey should take Trade Prosperity about 34 days to cover the 12,370 nautical miles to Vietnam, at an average speed of 15 knots.
Julian Dunning, farm trader at Glencore Grain UK, highlighted the importance of the grain export.
"After the huge harvest of 2015 it has been imperative to move large stocks of grain, before the new crop comes in this summer.
"This trade will have had a significant impact in underpinning all important crop values for the new season."
The previous biggest shipment is believed to have been 66,000 tonnes, with most port capabilities limited to around 50,000 tonnes by loading facilities and deep water access.
