I dont it was disgusting way of paying farmers bps is no better , but circumstances have changed and looks like food is going to get very tight so they need to help folk to produce now as they have ran the majority of livestock places about into the ground it takes money to turn that around .
Lots of capital Grant's available at the moment to help productivity.
The last thing we need is headage payments on livestock .

Money need to get into the hands of producers , how i dont know , but getting paid just cos you have an acre is no good folk producing naff all getting 100s thousands is not good when folk are going to go hungry. As for capital grants just makes things expensive and dosnt really up production much if any.

All very well but the grant is only usually 50% max of the cost. If nobody has any money they can’t afford to stump up the other 50% so can’t take advantage of them. India have banned all wheat exports this morning apparently so if you thought inputs are crippling cash flow now wait till a month or two. That Monday meeting with the feed rep for forward pricing somebody had booked might just be cancelled..

My pal won’t use digestate, says it kills all the worms? He seen a field spread with it and there was a mineral bucket left and underneath it was a mass of worms trying to get away from the stuff
Yes. Slurry can be like that as well though if it's quite wet at the surface and worms are just at the top. If it's dry they go down deeper into the soil and it won't affect them.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
