LONDON (B)--U.K. Total Income From Farming (TIFF) is seen falling for a fifth consecutive year, unless massive restructuring is undertaken to reduce farmers' overheads, leading farm consultants Andersons said Sunday at the Royal Smithfield agricultural event here, launching its latest 2001 outlook report.

The report predicted that most major commodities would be down in value terms, either because of lower prices or volumes or both. Francis Mordant, Andersons head of Business Research, said that while variable costs fell in proportion to output, overheads failed to respond.
