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 Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC) has welcomed the granting of equivalence for UK certified seed of cereal, fodder, beet, vegetable, oil and fibre plants by the EU, which means that seed can now be exported to the EU.
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.
