Evidence needed of unfair input pricing

I WOULD be grateful for any and all information regarding what the farming community consider to be examples of unfair/extreme pricing differentials, between here and other trade zones, particularly in the pricing of pesticides.

Examples of which type are the pricing of 4 litres of Diazonon sheep dip, which allegedly is supplied to UK farmers at @ £720, but costs New Zealand farmers @ £52.

All information will be compiled in a dossier to be placed with the DTI committee investigating unfair pricing policies of suppliers and manufacturers.
