The article reports that Grainfarmers is looking for more arable farmers to invest in a new central storage facility to be built in Northamptonshire, England. The grain store hoped to obtain financial assistance under the Rural Development Programme For England to pay for infrastructure costs. A survey conducted by the English Farming and Food Partnerships in 2006 found that the lack of grain storage in the area was affecting farmers' efforts to increase the value of arable crops.
