Spike Photography was up for an early start to photograph a lorry being loaded with wheat in Lincolnshire to supply a new multi-million-pound biofuels plant.

Photography client Frontier Agriculture is in charge of supplying the £200m Vivergo plant, at Saltend, in Hull, has revealed that it has signed over 500 farmers to the ‘Humber Gold wheat club’ in tjust a few weeks.

The Hull-based plant is set to become the largest buyer of grain in the whole of the country and hopes to buy the one million tonnes of wheat it needs each year from local farmers.

The site is a joint venture between DuPont, BP and British Sugar and will turn the wheat into biofuel for use in lorries and forklift trucks.
