From this December.Does anyone know are you meant to feed in the first year of your agreement? It says feed from December to April, but agreements start in January one month after your meant to start feeding?
Your meant to start feeding when your winter Bird feed crop runs out but in the first year of the agreement it wont be planted yet?
I have just done the exact same costing exercise for this option.Leaves you £12.36 to feed out each week at a minimum of two different locations for 22 consecutive weeks, when you add in handling, storage, admin and any machinery costs working for well under the minimum wage.
I think its a good option but needs to compromise and either pay quite a lot more or be less prescriptive.
When the option was introduced in April 2015, Wheat was £110/t with 2015 harvest price not much over £90/t.
