Arable Farmer
Haven't started yet,either on sprayer or hedge cutter sorting out corn storage only just finished cutting beans,luckily I've got all my seed requirements sat in the shed,hopefully get started tomorrow but its like concrete out there. 🌧️ 🌧️


Hearing the seed trade finding it hard to make deliveries on farm with the fuel issue.
Any truth in that?

Of course there is truth in it. Everything is completely f**ked at the moment.

Yes more than truth. Just been into Grantham. All six fuel station out of fuel. At three with shops I asked when expecting a delivery - the staff had no idea. Same in Spalding. Postman this morning said Grantham delivery vans will start running out of fuel mid week. Post will not be delivered. Right old mess.

Agchems/feed etc next. Gang labour manning potato grading lines. Cutting gangs. Hey ho.
