Jan 03, 2018, 09:35 AM

With the turn of the year, the post-Brexit world of the end of March 2019 ebbs ever closer. Hear, in this podcast, how AHDB maintains its focus on the possible impact on farming and why productivity matters, in terms of the economic wellbeing of those involved with producing food for British households. Once again AHDB urges farmers and growers ‘not to sleepwalk into Brexit’ and considers the benefits of collaborative working, as well as whether we can learn from our competitors.

AHDB’s Tom Hind talks with John Bates.

The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board's (AHDB) assessment of current productivity within UK agriculture is set out in the latest in the series of Horizon reports, titled Driving productivity growth together.
