    Why have AHDB commissioned NFU to chair the investigation into imported grain assurance standards and costs?

    I'm not certain of exactly what is being studdied, but I believe AHDB have funded a study, chaired by Tom Bradshaw (NFU Vice President), looking into the tests done on imported grain, cost of doing so etc. I'm just concerned that the NFU partly own RT, and are generally supportive of RT, so how...

    Why will the AIC not confirm what tests are done on imported grain?

    This is the most ridiculous situation I see currently in farming. Red Tractor and Jim Moseley tell us that the mills prefer imported grain because of the "extensive testing", but no one will say what these tests are. If jim doesn't know then what he said will go down as one of the most idiotic...

Very frustrating. Only quote I received was for £5 a can which is eye watering. Happy to drain and clean...

    Guy Smith's response to FW article on AIC rules.

    What's he talking about. I don't get his argument. We say we want AIC to allow UK grain to have same intake requirements as imports. Guy is waffling on about government, neonics, and watering down RT rules to lowest common denominator is bad. We're not talking about lowering RT rules, we're...

    Spray license

    Hello all, I'm looking at digging our old sprayer out of the shed and fixing the pump then using it for spraying off grassland and round the borders of fields with roundup. It's only a 12m sprayer so can't do the arable with it. Do I need a sprayer license for that? I was thinking I could...
