Different views on British farming
UK farming is a world leader in sustainability, according to Caroline Drummond of LEAF, the industry charity that promotes “good agricultural practice”.
The Guardian points out that the statement runs counter to a report into the future of agriculture by Promar International, specialist analysts of the food chain.
Its authors express “acute concern” in Europe about British agriculture.
