    So at what price point for N do you fallow your farm ? early bought N which seemed expensive at the time now looks cheap, how about selling it on and taking a year out ?

    The Governments assault on livestock farming.

    The unqualified ban on live exports, the continual mal-apportioned blame for carbon emissions, an ELMS scheme that discriminates against pasture amongst other things, is this all due to lobbying by animal rights extremists or is there a real policy in Whitehall that they think there will be a...

    Switch to organic farming causes chaos in Sri Lanka

    Interesting stuff going on in Sri Lanka right now, back in April the government unilaterally declared that all farming was to become organic, and outlawed the importation of agro-chemicals and artificial fertilisers. This has resulted in rampant food price inflation as crop yields are set to...

    Regen ag or re wilding.

    So I’ve been reading a fair bit about upland regenerative ag projects recently. Some of which seem to involve some famous faces and consultants. But it seems to me that a lot of what they are calling regen ag is really just rebranded rewilding with a small amount of livestock thrown in. Sort of...

    DEFRA liaising with TFF.

    Surely if DEFRA are liasing with TFF in any way it must be a good thing. Up until now the only organisation representing British agriculture at Government level has been the NFU. If TFF can become an organisation representing British agriculture at government level that will be great.(y)(y)

    TFF Grass Roots Group

    I've just been looking through this week's Farmers Guardian, and saw three quotes from members of the 'TFF Grass Roots Group' in the first couple of pages. If there are a group of people that purport to represent us, then shouldn't we at least know who they are?

    160 acres arable

    Hello all, I am currently in the position of working a stable job but the opportunity is on the horizon of the small family owned arable farm. I know my way around a tractor but have never actually ‘done’ farming. Is taking it on myself viable? All the machinery is bought and paid for albeit...
