Webinars are available to members on the current Due Diligence consultation on forest risk commodities. 2 are being offered by Defra in January, and AIC will be hosting its own webinar Q&A on this subject for members in early February.
AIC has been approached by Defra to ask if members would consider applying for the Plant Varieties and Seeds Tribunal.
This is a statutory appeal body created by primary legislation, and will make legally binding decisions about national listing of new varieties of plants and UK plant variety rights. It is UK wide.
The Farm Safety Partnership is hoping to reduce farm fatalities by driving home the message about following best practice. It may not always be easy to follow best practice especially when you are under time pressure, but there is no doubt following best practice at all times will reduce the risk of a serious incident on your farm and may well save a life too.
