The article reports on the prices of rapeseed in Great Britain in 2008. It states that ex-farm values struggled to better £275/ton, a fall of nearly £100/ton in less than six months. The interim "Green Book" revised gross margins for winter oilseed rape to £229/acre, compared with £280/acre in the May edition, partly caused by fertiliser costs moving from £84/acre to £129/acre.
