GRAIN STORAGE FOR HARVEST 2021

There is the potential for grain uplift disruption this year. By acting now, NFU Scotland members can do their bit to prevent this.

The shortage of lorry drivers in the UK has hit the headlines recently, and there is a chance that this could affect grain haulage at harvest. As harvest approaches, we urge our members to think about their capacity to store grain. Have you got plenty of storage, or might you need a bit more if lorries are delayed? Can you maintain quality if there are delays?

If you know you definitely need storage, or you definitely have space to store more grain, then you can get in touch with your local Machinery Ring and let them know. Ringlink Scotland’s Graham Bruce said it is important to act now “harnessing the existing grain storage capacity of farms can buffer against any supply chain disruptions in this uncertain year. If you have any spare room for storage on your farm, then think about how you can support other Scottish arable farmers”.
