22/03/11 -- What little wheat UK farmers do have to sell is being locked in the barn for a rainy day I hear. Compounders are reporting it being difficult to prise spot wheat out of sellers gnarled and sweaty "bunch of carrots" mitts for collection in the next week or two.

This isn't necessarily because they've fallen in love with the notion that ex-farm wheat at anything that doesn't start with a "2" is giving it away, but more to do with the fact that they don't want to cash in any more chips in the current 2010/11 tax year, I am being told.

The spot price of Range Rovers has gone through the roof then I suppose?!
