UK: Outgoers' scheme for sugar beet growers announced
British Sugar and the NFU yesterday announced a new scheme, available as a one-off and for one year only, which allows growers to relinquish all or part of their contracted tonnage entitlement to other existing growers or potential new growers.

The scheme is aimed at giving growers greater flexibility and improving industry efficiency.
