Got a letter through today explaining they are moving Nelson to the BIPO royalty scheme.
Agronomically I think it's great but sadly, I think it has to leave the farm.

Costs £7 more per ha (which I'm happy enough with)
More concerned with their terms:

"you should note BIPO reserves the right to audit your records to ensure compliance with the agreement. Please retain records of your purchase or processing of seed and field records showing area and sowing rate to allow BIPO auditors to verify your declarations. To ensure everyone is subject to the same conditions ... BIPO will be undertaking an audit of grower's records on a regular basis"

"The grower will permit an employee, officer or representative of BIPO to have access to the established crops of the varieties and to all documents relating to the use and disposal of seed of the varieties and the produce"

"please note because of the Covid 19 crisis restricting farm visits BIPO may use other methods of checking field data such as satellite image technology"


No thanks.

No thanks.

Seems a bit pointless to me. Anybody farm saving a BIPO variety will just call it something else like Crusoe.

From experience it's a bit of a marmite variety, very few homes are keen to handle it now unless there's been a change of policy?

Thought it was quite popular with some but may lack critical mass as a variety.

As far as I know, it's not pushed because it needs fewer inputs. So the agronomists don't like it...

I just looked at my mobile seed cleaning and dressing invoice and see they haven't collected royalty like they usually do.
Seed cleaner just replied to say they can't collect BIPO royalty.
I have emailed BIPO.
I had never heard of them before, I have no idea why they have not organised for royalty to be paid at point of seed dressing similar to BSPB.

The results of this survey will allow the industry to quantify domestic production, at a time when food security is more important than ever.
The information can be used to shape the domestic market and trade and assist levy payers in their marketing decisions. It will detail regional differences of cropping across the UK, which will help...
