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).
An increasingly important item on AIC’s agenda is the sustainability of the entire food supply chain as it attracts greater attention from NGOs, retailers and governments, with deforestation in relation to soya being given particular focus.
