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.

    Hello just wondering if anybody has approx 1.5 tonnes of spring barley seed left that they might want to sell? Variety not an issue, it will only be used to feed ducks! Gloucestershire area but willing to travel to neighboring counties.
  2. I've got spare treated spring barley, Probably not what your looking for tho.

    Why do you feed from treated seed?

    I think there is a mix up here.

    I think the OP meant spring barley grains...but not seed. Feeding treated seed would be unsafe and probably illegal I would think. Think about the fact you need to bury spilt seed to stop wildlife eating it.

    Fair comment. Maybe the logic is like the rat poison - it could build up inside mammals.

  11. Maybe he wants to grow a crop to feed his ducks with....maybe to plant and eat in situ around ponds in autumn, early winter?
