Although widely criticised and hugely wasteful, The Common Agricultural Policy did at least afford British farmers a degree of support.

Post-Brexit, that support will vanish - to be replaced with a woefully misconceived agricultural export drive that cannot possibly deliver.

Bittersweet suggests a solution: better education and training in the agricultural sector could radically transform the nature of farming in Britain today.

It would improve yields, increase sustainability and ensure greater self-sufficiency at a time when food security is becoming a vital issue.

This scenario provides a progressive, forward-thinking and optimistic future for food and farming in Britain, which, unlike many other industries, is currently being ignored.
