    Comment: If correct, this means nobody needs to bother with fallow or hedges as all their EFA/Greening requirement will be met by the outside metre next to the boundary (which will count for 9m2) and provide each field with its own EFA (typically 5-15% depending on the size and shape). It'll only be fields of over 60-70ha that might struggle. Every field will have a metre next to a fence or hedge (it can be the cross-compliance grass margin) and woun't even affect thos in Mid or Higher Tier as any grass margins is on top of the c/c requirement. Would welcome confirmation that this is indeed the case as nobody seems to have picked up on it in the media - or the NFU.
