Better farmer than me if you can earn enough in 4 years to pay for the fifth. I remember years ago telling you that if your farm is as heavy and wet as you say it should be grass. Your strategy of not buying makes more sense in the light of that but don't expect everyone else to be in a similar position.
does staffordshire have any heavy land? or do they think they have?

No end of people have cut their application levels down. Some as low as 60kg/ha on wheat🤦‍♂️ Which is just foolish.

Depends on the situation .
my first wheats came out of the winter looking very well, so I’ve only applied 100 units . Looking ok this evening . Proof will be at harvest, but happy with my decision .

CF volumes are on allocation. Wholesalers don’t have the volume to offer to buying groups.
Good morning. I just wanted to respond to your comment regarding buying groups and volumes available. It is absolutely correct that some products have been on allocation across the entire UK, whether to merchant or to buying group. Therefore, across the board, supply issues have prevailed and will continue to do so. However, while I appreciate "buying groups" to be a very general reference, I wanted to be absolutely clear that many Woldmarsh members have been planning forward purchases, considering alternatives well in advance and were able to book their solid fertilizers to the tonnage of their choice. My thanks go to all of our fertilizer suppliers who have supported the group so well. Written by Heather Claridge (Fertilizer Manager and incoming CEO of Woldmarsh)

What will happen in 5 years or so when bps is a mere memory
Ah we will have the "British Production Suppliment". A flat rate £100/ac for all lowland, and a headage payment for stock. This will require much govt expenditure on a brand new IT solution, outsourced to an IT company via its Cayman Island subsiduary and featuring the patronage of many ex-MPs on its board.

Ahh, you've also noticed how efficiently parliamentary elite profit from previous IT solutions 🤔

Of course, it won't be a flat rate fee and headage payment the new IT system will oversee.....

...... It'll be an assurance scheme that requires total compliance to permit sale of produce

We'll pay for membership, annual inspection, and access to the central database that keeps our records

In return for adhering to ever more ludicrous lengthy laws, they won't permit the market to be swamped by totally unregulated imports

(Well just a bit swamped, not totally)

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.
