The Crop It Like It's Hot Podcast about future policy impacts on crop nutrition. Speaking to the show’s host Alice Dyer, Jane outlined where crop nutrition can go within the context of the Clean Air Strategy, the consultation on urea and the new Sustainable Farming Incentive in England.
The AIC has responded to Defra’s consultation on ‘regulation of genetic technologies’ in England. The consultation focussed on a future Government approach to gene-editing in England, and the regulation of gene edited (GE) organisms possessing genetic changes which could have been introduced by traditional breeding. It also asked for views on the wider regulatory framework governing genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
AIC’s Head of Policy and External Affairs appeared on the Farmers Weekly podcast to explain the current challenges being faced by AIC members as a result of the UK’s exit from the EU, and what it means for agricultural supply businesses.
In response to the continued uncertainty over EU Exit, this year the AIC Switchboard will be available for any Member concerns that arise, in addition to the usual availability by staff to cover Sector emergencies.
Following on from the announcement of the Government’s proposed agricultural transition support plan for England, the Secretary of State for Defra George Eustice underlined the role of advisors and agronomists in the new scheme.
