NFU president Minette Batters issued a strongly worded message to policymakers warning them that the â€˜clock is tickingâ€™ for Government to get behind British farmers and growers.
It seems over recent months that good news policy announcements for our sector have been few and far between, so it was welcoming to hear the recent Government decision confirming the roll out of E10 petrol this year.
2021 seems to be the year of the consultation. By the time you read this, the urea consultation will have closed, and no doubt growers will have had communication from Red Tractor regarding the opening of its V5 standards consultation.
Writing this in mid-September after another harvest is complete, I, like many growers, find myself reflecting on the growing year just passed.
