Temporary storage derogation extended as Scottish harvest difficulties continue

A derogation extending the use of temporary grain storage is to be applied as growers in Scotland struggle to complete their harvest.

Under Scottish Quality Cereals assurance scheme rules temporary cereal stores must be empty by October 31. However, in the event of an abnormally late harvest, where crops are unharvested by October 1, growers may, no later than October 14, apply for an extension of the deadline for temporary store usage.

 

SQC has announced the derogation has been put in place for an additional 28 days from the end of October. Furthermore growers need not make an individual application to SQC’s certification body.

 

SQC’s Douglas Morrison says: “With harvest still to be completed in some parts of the country, we hope this derogation is of assistance to affected growers.”
