Even if you don’t manage to make it to the UK Grain event, there’s still a chance to put your questions to our three grain storage experts.
From 23 October to 6 November, there will be a Direct Talk facility in the Farmers Weekly website – www.fwi.co.uk– where you can post your question on a special Direct Talk forum.
It will be monitored regularly by our three-man panel and they’ll do their best to give you a helpful answer. Just go to https://www.fwi.co.uk/directtalkgrain– you’ll be able to put your own question or see other farmers’ questions and the answers they were given.
So one way or another it should be interesting stuff.
