The article reports on a study conducted by the Cereals Industry Forum (CIF) in Great Britain which found that a combination of inefficient haulage, unnecessary repeat testing of grain and a failure to collaborate on industry problems is continuing to add to the arable industry's cost structure. The findings of the three-year CIF study form the basis of the Home Grown Cereals Authority's Supply Chain Partnership campaign, launched at its annual conference in October 2007.
