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.

    Around the kitchen garden, back of house and trailing badly into the old orchard. What is the best plan of action? Its silver in appearance never seen flowers on it. Its trailing into the veg beds too. Its has a very strong root base. How can we action this? Im worried that leaving this will allow it to trail further.

    We get the best hay off the field which is infested with silverleaf. I don't know the reason.
