A plan to double the county’s agri-food sector’s contribution to the economy within the next two decades is to be shared with farmers and growers at a meeting in Spalding on Tuesday, September 2.

The National Farmers Union, in conjunction with the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise partnership which published the Agri-Food Sector Plan 2014-2020, is to present the vision at the Patio Room, Springfields Events Centre (8am for a 8.30am start to 10am).

Mark Tinsley, Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise partnership Board member and Martin Collison, the agri-food sector paper’s author, will explain the plan and how it will be taken forward.

Farming and horticultural businesses will benefit in the overall growth objectives, but to do that the NFU says they need to be part of it.

Places can be booked for September 2 by calling Brenda Goode or Laura Harrison on 01572 824250 or email brenda.goode@nfu.org.uk by August 29.
