With the cut in funding from AHDB and the pending creation of a new competing scheme, surely RT's days are numbered?
What will that mean for those of us who are signed up for assurance if RT goes under? Will we still be able to market our produce or will the alternative schemes take us on if...
A group, including myself and 3 cereals farmers met with Robert Sheasby and John Kelley from the AIC on Friday afternoon.
AIC were able to take us through their role in the industry.

We are of the opinion that our concerns have not been voiced by...
The Environment Agency and their 100ft drain issue
Red Tractor and their double standards of UK grain vs imported
Natural England and @ajcc
NFU and their denial of ownership of Red Tractor
These are just a few examples of bodies failing in their own remit but hypocritically...
AHDB TO LAUNCH OWN SELF CERTIFICATION SCHEME
Well this should be the easy plan, and may save @AHDB Cereals and Oilseeds if they act quickly.
Is this the way forward to put the power back in our hands where it belongs?
AHDB Subsidiary Company as per Schedule1, using some of our...
