In order to evaluate the effect of volatility on arable crops, the NFU has launched its 2020 harvest survey and urged farmers to complete the survey following a ‘season of extremes.’

The survey is expected to give accurate production statistics to show the land-efficient way in which the United Kingdom grows and cultivates crops.

“It is important that government recognises the uniqueness of the country’s arable sector with its maritime climate and various regional soil types, formulating new policy that incorporates diversity within combinable crops,” NFU combinable crops board chairman, Matt Culley said.
