So in essence, the marketing claim that is made above is correct. They can trace back to the farms their wheat originated from.

Of course, the consumer probably doesn't care- I buy real-deal cornflakes and I can't even tell you what planet the corn they used came from- no claims are made on the box.

Can you/have you edited your post on RT Facebook
Edited on Facebook, so I don't look as silly as I actually am. Stuck with the silly maths faux Pas on Twitter

Maybe it's just me who can see it until they approve it?

I can still see it on my user. I think they need to approve a lot of comments!

What happens if Farmer Giles fails the rules he signed up to follow and his 100 t of non assured wheat has caused the price to drop on 2800t of his neighbours , they proceed to give him a kick in!

That's why you all need to do a mass balance!
Just goes to show what use my mass balance will be! I can't even add 100 + 2,900.

Thought I was going to have a thread about RT. Ended up with a thread showing what a plonker Grass and Grain is.

Edit. Oh no, I've done it again. I've written 100 + 2,900 this time. Last time it was 100 + 2,800. At least 100 + 2,900 does add up to 3,000.

With a calculator like yours have you considered a bit of agricultural contracting? There must be a secret sequence of buttons to mash that give the value of X where X = a number that undercuts every other bloke for 30 miles? (y)

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
