"All growers to wear electronic tags with GPS so we can cross check then to see if they did monitor their grain when they said they did."

"Growers to provide inside leg measurements."

"Growers to fill out form to assess risks caused by storage of depleted uranium previously in sheds."

"Growers to ensure they employ workers to reflect the diverse makeup of modern Britain."

Any of those likely?

Engagement in their consultation was pretty shyte ........... and I suspect that the 30% of growers were not overwhelmingly in favour of further ratcheting up

I suspect too that the 82% of us dairy boys who didn't engage had the reason of having better things to do - like work 12+ hour days

Glad you read the part that said embargoed until 00.01 1st July 2021.

But does the item Clive posted reveal anything before the press embargo time. I read it and it is just press'puff' with 'easy qoutes' for a journo or trainee hack to cut and paste into an article. As for the actual changes in standards there is reference to those becoming available later.

You boys on here scoring points keeps me coming back as an amusing soap opera. Cheers.

It's a matter of trust and respect within the media and wider industry including government.

You just don't or you lose credibility

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.
