The NFU is campaigning to ensure that agriculture is properly valued in flood risk assessments and that rural flooding is effectively managed.

We’re also working to create a landscape that links water security to food security, with a system of abstraction that gives farmers and growers a fair share of water, particularly during times of drought.

And we're promoting our industry’s strong voluntary record in recent years on Nitrate Vulnerable Zones and the control of pesticides around water. Select a specialism below or scroll down for news from across the areas.
