Non-food forms due

DECLARATION forms for non-food crops grown on set-aside land are now due for crops harvested for delivery this autumn, says MAFF.

A deadline of Nov 15 has been set where the delivery date of the crop allows. If the delivery date is too late for submission by then, and farmers can show this is the case, forms will be accepted and penalties not applied.

The UK is seeking an EC derogation to allow later payments. &#42
