NAAC farm contractor charges 2016-17

The National Association of Agricultural Contractors (NAAC) has released its annual guide to contracting fees for the 2016-17 season.

Covering everything from ploughing and drilling to combining and baling, the NAAC contractor charges guide 2016-17 [PDF] helps farmers check they are paying the correct amount for contracting services.

It is also a useful tool for contractors to keep an eye on the market and remain competitive.

As always the figures have been calculated using the mid-price quoted by NAAC members based on a fuel price of 40p/litre – a significant drop from last year.

Actual prices can vary considerably between regions, soil types and equipment type, but it is a good place to start.
