Discussion: ‘Building an industry post-Brexit’. The guests outlined the main challenges facing British Agriculture following the decision for the UK to leave the EU. They discussed the issues of trade, non-UK labour, reallocation of funding away from direct support to increasing productivity, R&D, knowledge exchange, grants, tax relief and earned recognition of assurance schemes with CFG members.
