Farmers Weekly Podcast Episode 15: Hydrogen tractors and fuel bills

In this week’s Podcast we find out how you can cut your fuel bills by a quarter… the answer is hydrogen.

We talk to the growers who want a ballot to decide the future of their AHDB Levy. The OSR harvest gets underway across the country just as one of the key processing sites suffers a major fire.

We look at the results of this year’s annual crop plantings survey from AHDB and how farm tourism gets a boost from VAT cuts.
