Contracts to boost Cordiale

ADM Milling wants to double the tonnage of Group 2 wheat Cordiale grown on contract next season for its nine flour mills.

It is offering 2007 harvest contracts to growers for the early maturing variety, which the firm says offers an ideal combination of protein, high Hagberg and specific weight for specific flour applications.

Growers must use certified seed supplied by participating merchants, who will also handle crop marketing and sales.

The buyback contract offers £7/t below the Group 1 price, or a minimum £5/t above feed wheat, whichever is greater.

Contracts are based on full specification milling wheat, with fallbacks as applicable.
