Beet bonus restores confidence in growers

Have your say

The NFU and British Sugar have recently announced details of a contract completion bonus payment for beet growers.

Provided they fulfil their contract, growers will receive £1.50 per tonne on their 2013/14 contract tonneage. This will be paid following the 2013/14 campaign and applying to both Contract Tonneage Entitlement (CTE) and Industrial Tonneage (ICE).

NFU Sugar has been highlighting to British Sugar for some months the difficulties of this year’s campaign and the significant loss of confidence among growers.
