Commission rule that dictates the number of crops he must grow is an
attack on his human rights. The three`crop rule means those with
larger farms will have to grow at least three different crops on their
land. Those who break the rule will lose part of their European farming
subsidy. Jill Archbold reports. Springtime Britain, where the crops
are traditionally colourful and diverse. The European commission
wants landowners to grow more varieties, claiming diversity will
help the environment. Here, it is the last year this arable farmer can
grow whatever he wants. I do not want to be constrained by Brussels.
I want to be flexible to respond to whatever the market requires. We

not to have to grow crops with no market. Farmers with more than ten
hectares must cultivate two crops under the rules. If their land
exceeds that, they must cultivate three and the main crop might not
cover more than 75% of land. The National Farmers' Union said that
farmers are concerned and those who do not comply would risk losing 30%
of their EU subsidy. We have worked hard with the EU, trying to put
across the argument that it is an illogical process to enforce on all
member states. We argue strongly against the rule because it adds
complexity to the policy but does not add a great deal of
environmental benefit. In the shade of Scunthorpe's industry, evidence
that farmers like Andrew Jackson are already dedicating areas of land for
wildlife. He rotates and cultivates a variety of crops. Because my soil
is not fertile I have a wide variety, such as growing carrots on
this sandy soil of the people cannot. By growing different crops
it spreads the workload and marketing risks and prevents disease
build`up in the soil. Farmers like Andrew already grow three or more
crops but many will have to diversify what they crave from next
January. Hull FC have suffered a fourth successive defeat. They lost
