Spalding area farmer Tony Gent looks at a challenging autumn
Brexit and the weather as ever are the topics of the moment, as I write this it’s Boris’s metaphoric “dead in a ditch” time. I am sure all farmers have ditches that Boris would be very uncomfortable in at the moment, both from a weather point of view and the unfolding Brexit policy for agriculture.
There is still massive uncertainty although No-deal seems to have receded for the moment, but the current proposed deal is somewhat harder than previous proposals.
We have had over 40 years now of developing across the E.U. a stable and reliable high standard food supply infrastructure that is diverse enough to cover both seasonal needs and weather extremes to a high standard with free and simple to administer trade that we all benefit from both ways.
