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.

  1. Iv still got my dad's first tractor he fought new in 1963, a 35x, it's sat in an old shed for twenty years. We then had a 135 with a loader, 4 cylinder that was sat on a hill and pumped with autostart, then we had 4 fists in the eights and nintys, 90/90 and 680. Now have a landini and Mf. Fiats not fists. Wonder if l will ever get another or will the landini and Fergie have to do me, in the 80,s when l was still at school dad was alway changing those fiats, there was a great dealer Willie burns on the go and a goog bank manager.

    I am going to have to buy a new tractor in the near future and know it won't last as long, then again nor will I.
     
  4. Can remember going with dad, l was 12 in 1986, to look at tractors at burns yard at lanark, it was a great afternoon. We got a fiat 580 fwd with quickie loader, that was the first 4wd on the farm. Fists had good engines but rusted to bits.
