I’m not sure if you’ll see another basic payment either the way they are having to spend. Maybe the end of cross compliance and farm for productivity again?
Whats the point of ploughing the crap strips round fields that are tufty grass and will cost more to get cultivated than worth. Sounds the sort of thing the radical farmer lobby would say. Better to divert cereals away from meat production into direct consumption. And non food uses - pet food - do we need that. So a far deeper subject.
