So has the potato levy been binned???
Don't know, I think AHDB are having second thoughts about a vote on the levy for other sectors. They can see it could be the finish of them so are turning it into a survey. I have sent 2 emails to them asking about their intention to call a vote with no reply yet. It could hinge on them offering an alternative to RT. Last email from them was 19th May saying they were winding down potatoes but still want to be payed. White Rabbit may have some idea what they are planning !
