Farming Matters – Summer 2019

Welcome to the summer edition of farming matters which I had envisaged would focus heavily on the first months of post Brexit Britain and the immediate implications for the agricultural industry.

I was also expecting to give an update on the progress of the Agricultural Bill through Parliament and some clarity to the specifics of the Environmental Land Management projects, what they might look like and what this might mean in terms of availability of government support for the agricultural sector in general and, ideally, for the individual farm.

Alas, this will need to wait until the next edition (at the earliest) and the unwelcome uncertainty surrounding what the future holds continues. 2019 has seen an interesting start to the farming year. The threat of a hard Brexit has hung around like a dark cloud, and the possible impacts have been unwelcome distractions. The industry and business in general crave some certainty, but this seems to be too much to ask at the moment.
