The author compares the levy rates for horticultural crops with other branches of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) of Great Britain. He notes that AHDB collect 0.5 percent of the value of the farmers' turnover on horticultural crops and they also pay an area levy to the Potato Council. He claims that horticultural producers are paying twice as much as their counterparts as a percentage of their turnover.
