Allan Wilkinson, Head of Agriculture at HSBC said: "The volatility of commodities is an expected part of farming's trading cycle and we have been working with our customers to deal with this severe downturn for the past 18 months. We want to help businesses progress in the most realistic way and are sensitive to the fact that most farmgate prices are considerably lower than where they were some 12 months ago.
