The meeting will look and costings for the 2021 harvest. We will also budget for 2022 season which will be challenging with the wheat price and fertiliser price increases.
With the current cost of fertiliser the group will discuss full farm nutrient budgets and how to use bulky organic manures along with farmyard manure and AD waste to minimise the cost of purchased inorganic manure.
2022 looks to be a real challenge when it comes to variable costs and attention tom detail will be essential to maintain margins. If you are interested in joining this Focus Group, please contact Derek Hanton on 01463 233266.
