ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the disagreements between British Sugar and the National Farmers Union (NFU) on the issue of price in light of the grower initiative of DEFRA in Great Britain. British Sugar explained to growers that they will get a guaranteed price of at least £20/adjusted tonne for 2008, paid as delivered during the campaign. NFU argued that the price on offer is nowhere near enough to encourage farmers to grow sugar beet.
