    Sustainable farming incentive details published today

    Morning Janet, could you please confirm that it will be written in the terms & conditions of any ELMS agreement that for the full term of any agreement DEFRA will alone police & monitor the scheme, you would understand that it would put a slightly different complexion on the scheme if we were to...

    ELMS terms & conditions re Red Tractor

    ELMS terms & conditions re Red Tractor

    Well all I can say is I make out the annual cheque to SAI Global & it is ultimately owned by Intertec.

Are they going to...
