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


want to be able to produce quality British food and supply the market,


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

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


20`6 to Leeds Rhinos at Headingley last night. Hull coach Lee Radford
