Increasing numbers of NFU members are diversifying their business to undertake activities involving waste including spreading waste to land, using waste exemptions and anaerobic digestion.
The NFU has built strong networks with Defra, the Environment Agency and the European Commission to ensure any regulation is consistent and proportionate.
The NFU says it's disappointed that the Environment Agency (EA) has rejected our recommendation to delay the implementation of changes to its charges regime until at least April 2019.
Defra has launched a consultation looking at enhancing measures to reduce crime and poor performance in the waste sector. Find out how you can take part here.
We've put together more than 150 NFU Business Guides covering all aspects of running a successful agricultural or horticultural business.
It is our primary focus to promote the use of all British food throughout the retail, brands, food service, government and wholesale sectors to help shorten supply chains and enable fair terms of trade.
