A new government strategy that will show agriculture as innovative, rewarding and business-focused will help sell it to the next generation of growers.

That’s the response of NFU president Peter Kendall to the new Agri-Tech Strategy aimed at bringing science and agriculture closer together.

About £160 million will be invested establishing Centres for Agricultural Innovation and an Agri-Tech Catalyst fund will improve the translation of research into practice.

Mr Kendall said: “Showing agriculture as an innovative, rewarding and business-focused sector will make it a career of choice for the next generation of farmers.”
