Miscanthus growers wanted

More Miscanthus planting is needed to meet a sustainable growth in demand and Terravesta is launching an exclusive offer for spring 2019 planting which activates a discount of up to £200 per hectare.

More than 300 farmers are reaping the benefits of long-term, fixed price contracts to grow and sell Miscanthus. There are numerous markets for the crop, which include long-term supply contracts with two major power stations which are backed by 25-year agreements with the UK Government.

Miscanthus is a low maintenance perennial energy crop, harvested every spring and has the potential to yield 12 – 17 tonnes per hectare, which can give the farmer a return of over £900 per hectare from mature yield.

To lock into our discounted pricing structure, the process starts now. Terravesta needs a signed term contract and establishment contract, a 5% deposit and a sustainability data return no later than 30th September 2018.
