1. Farmers, growers, processors and industry representatives are being asked for their views from 31 August for 10 weeks on the role of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).

    The AHDB is a UK statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain. As we leave the EU, there is an opportunity to ensure that the sectors that the AHDB covers are as competitive as possible. This review will look at the AHDB’s purpose and priorities, its strengths and where improvements need to be made.

    This is a joint 10-week exercise covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The request for views will close on 9 November.

    Anyone use it and find any better uptake/growth in a dry time than with prilled compound npk etc? Heard a couple of anecdotal examples of it working better off a couple of farmers the other day and will try anything once. TIA

    I put some on after first cut on Monday because it's so dry. Can't say it's greened up much quicker. Will keep you posted.

    Yes used it last couple of years.Contractor with Chafer trailed sprayer and 24m autosteer. On a cost per unit its more expensive,but gets to work almost straight away,unlike prills in a dry spell.
