Written by Lydia Turner

OF&G (Organic Farmers & Growers) is championing the launch of the English Organic Forum’s (EOF) new report, ‘Why organic – contributing productively to future farming and food policy’.

Produced as an organic industry-wide blueprint, the report sets out a comprehensive rationale for how and why organic land management should be integrated into English agricultural policy.

It’s publication is welcomed by OF&G’s chief executive and EOF member, Roger Kerr, who believes that organic can be a powerful pivot for system change.

“Collectively, the EOF is intent on amplifying the voice of the organic sector, as key decision makers fail to engage in a meaningful dialogue...

Written by William Kellett

Organisers of the Turriff Show in Scotland have announced that the event will not run in 2021 as planned due to the “continued uncertainty” around the ever-evolving Covid-19 situation.

“It is with deep regret and much consideration that we had to make the extremely difficult decision that the next Turriff Show will take place in 2022 and not 2021 as we had hoped,” said Alan Gaul, president of the show, which is organised by the Turriff District Agricultural Association.

The announcement of the release of the Covid-19 vaccine gave us all fresh hope for our 2021 event, but as time has moved on and with the possibility of restrictions for mass gatherings...

Survey shows British people value farmers more than any other country

Written by William Kellett

An international YouGov survey of more than 22,000 people in 16 countries reveals the most and least-respected professions.

While scientists and doctors came out as the most-respected professions worldwide – which is no surprise given how the world continues to be gripped by a pandemic – 47% of UK respondents said they would be happy if their child became a farmer, compared to a global average of 23%.

No other country in the survey showed a higher degree of respect for farmers than the UK.

Mark Bridgeman, president of the Country Land and Business Association which represents 30,000 rural businesses across England and Wales, said:

Spot wild oats for spring action

Identifying overwintered wild oat populations now, whilst crops are open and before spring flushes, will enable more effective spring control strategy decisions this season.


Understanding your wild oat population now will allow better tailoring of herbicide rates and timing of treatments, along with adapting the most appropriate application techniques, advocated Syngenta Field Technical Manager, Georgina Wood.


“Knowing the species can help predict the principal timing of germination. However, you can expect a protracted emergence at any stage from early autumn, right through to late spring.”

Entangled Lives: Fungal Networks, Ecology, and Us

  • 188

Thinking about fungi makes the world look different. Most fungi live out of sight, yet make up a massively diverse kingdom of organisms that support and sustain nearly all living systems. Fungi throw our concepts of individuality and even intelligence into question. They can change our minds, heal our bodies, and help remediate environmental disaster. In this conversation, Merlin Sheldrake and Charles Foster will discuss the ways these extraordinary organisms – and our relationships with them – change our understanding of the planet on which we live, and the ways that we think, feel, and behave.

Speakers: Merlin Sheldrake, Charles Foster

LAMMA has just issued the following:

Good Afternoon,

Following the ongoing uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 edition of the LAMMA Show due to take place 25-26 May at the NEC.

As you can all imagine, this decision has not been an easy one to make as we fully understand how key the show is to the entire industry and how keen we all were to make it happen in May.

However, the safety of our visitors and exhibitors is of top priority, and after listening to and sharing the concerns of all our stakeholders and being fully appreciative of all the associated planning and work that goes into getting ready for a show like this, a decision had to be made.

However, looking ahead to more positive times...
