Panic buying straw.

With the huge rises in fertilizer prices for Phosphate and Potash straw choppers on the back of combines next harvest will be surely a very common site what price will straw be next year and will there be any?

Will be plenty of straw next summer for sale.

Best autumn for drilling corn in years!

Most arable farmers have already bought their Fert for next season and many already have it in the shed.

The arable farmers next summer will need as much income as possible to buy Fert for the 2023 season, subs will be much less then, grain will only be around the £200 ton mark so they will certainly want the income from straw sales!

Seriously, many livestock farmers are going to have to think about growing a field of corn at home, to save on inputs, grain n straw, whats not to like about it
