Alicia Kearns MP asked the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to introduce a Gas-Fertiliser Index within DEFRA to help farmers better prepare for market volatility and support farmers with the recent increases in costs.
Alicia Kearns, MP for Rutland and Melton said:
"I've been arguing for months that the Government needs to introduce a Gas-Fertiliser Index. Today I made that case again to Ministers. It is not unreasonable for farmers to expect greater transparency with fertiliser."
