We have to dodge rocks on the road that get stuck in 8 wheeler lorry tyres ,,they come from the quarry and never check if theres anything in them before going on the main road ,,then the AD carts are never covered and theres chopped maize everywhere ,looks like a snow storm .
never see the police round here .

i hope that squad car is banned from the usual mcdonalds they go to they must be pretty weak to get any enjoyment out of booking that. I hope if the police didnt see the potatoes fall off the farmer will fight it in court papers get a hold of it and take the pee for the police hitting easy targets and not real issues

Potato harvest in full swing here too, all trucks' not tractor/trailer, all loaded to the max but still rare to see any spuds on the road..........they are a stable crop on a vehicle...................your cops are stupid for issuing a citation for that load, not very bright are they..?
there bright allright, bright enough to see an easy target. this or fighting real crime whats easier??? couple of these shifts soon over and back home they go. crime fighters eh teenage mutant turtles did more crime fighting than these lot

Bloke reported for 5 potatoes in road

25 protesters sitting in road: policewoman asks if there’s anything she can do for them.

What an utter utter joke this country is turning into…people sat on the m25, tossers dumping shite in every gateway, more thefts than ever before, everywhere running out of fuel and the country running out of everything else…and the cops are bothered about FIVE tatties on the road. It’s actually beggars belief

Farming has had its chips
 
Did they see the offending potatoes leave the trailer ? Was that the first and only load of potatoes that day ?

I would insist on a forensic test on the potato found on the road.............if it does not match the DNA of the spuds on the trailer I would be calling my attorney and sue for police harassment, of the driver..............and the potato's

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
