Certainly not farmers from abroad paying, so why would we pay, we sell a raw product that fully complies with uk law - tick - my merchant samples and does don tests etc FOC and finds appropriate end user - I assume that's...

    Will high fertiliser prices change you’re cropping plan.

    I emailed Hovis about this as they had big media announcement few years ago - only using British wheat but now apparently they have to use imported but flag signifies baked in Britain 😡misleading at best - Aldi the same - loaves have flag and baked in Britain

    Extase potential problems

    I have a 4ha block of extase within 12ha of zyatt, intending to save for seed. Not combined yet but have rubbed out some ears - looks very disappointing. Zyatt top - Extase bottom, Extase looked clean healthy thick crop all the way through. Bought seed in.

    Red Tractor SAI GLOBAL.

    Totally agree, cannot find a merchant in Kent that will find a home for non- assured wheat at all, so not voluntary for us at all 😡 if anyone knows any do speak up! Maybe we could start to compile a list?

    Red Tractor Fight, Campaign Resources

    Although they keep saying it is optional, I have spoken to 3 of the traders I deal with and they all say there are basically no non assured homes they can sell my grain to. Based in Kent, I am not sure how else to find a home for it, as I would very much like to leave RT!

    T1 Fungicide advice please

    If you were allowed to use a multi-site fungicide like Bravo it would work well against septoria if you have any or want cheap insurance- Teb mix for rust - never grown Costello so can't say but would think might get away with a cheaper option if no rust visible, but I'm not an agronomist!
