Looks like the NFU have done a right number on arable farmers.


Use of solid urea is now due to be regulated by Red Tractor.

The quote of the article from me was this:

NFU Deputy President Tom Bradshaw said: “Working alongside other farming organisations, such as AIC, we put forward a strong case to Defra for a robust and pragmatic industry-led approach, without which would have meant a ban on the use of solid urea fertilisers.”

What they didn't mention was Tom Bradshaw is now on the board for Red Tractor.

The cosy relationship continues.....and farmers continue to be stitched up by their own union who bizarrely consider this a "win". :rolleyes:

The alternatives were total ban or protected urea only

or some other inspection system devised by defra / Rpa
their inspection system for bps /stewardship
or trading standards

or we just have to use ammonium nitrate which will be more expensive and harder to import

the biggest issue is now availability of fertiliser especially if gas is prioritised to domestic uses and fertiliser factories are idle
