    Red Tractor staff

    Clearly many thousands of farmers now know that RT isn’t a legitimate company because farms still get inspected by government agencies for things that are written into law. So my question is that all the staff must know that the RT business model is questionable, so do they have a clear...

    Farmer Focus - Andrew Jackson

    Farmer Focus - December 2021 Harvest has come and gone. Yields were good but could have been better had the growing season not been so variable. We had trimmed our Nitrogen rates to 160 Kg/N/Ha for wheat and OSR, but huge swings of yields within the fields told me that the yield had not been...

    Swollen wheat seed

    I've got a quote from Western Power for a new, three-phase electric supply to my grain store. About 20% of the quote value has to be done by them, but I can get an approved Independent Connection Provider to quote for the other 80%. Has anyone any recommendations for companies they have used to...

    red tractor sugar beet

    Im not a grower but whats the point of red tractor in sugar when theres not a hope of tracing anything back to the original grower. Wheat intake muddys the water with traceability but surely this is on another level making it impossible????

    Insects for Protein in Laying Hens.

    Is now happening - see here: Just another way that UK ag is showing how sustainable it can be. I like the idea of circular systems - turning waste into eggs, via some maggots.

    fork lift test 5 days !

    Initially was told I'd need a 5 day course/test, now as I'm experienced (40 years of driving alsorts of equipment) It's been reduced to 2 days , more bureaucratic tick boxing bs , it seems a ticket for a larger forklift isn't acceptable for a little 3 wheel electric job. How long before some...
