Speaker: NFU Chief Crops Adviser Jack Watts 

It’s been a challenging year for both winter and spring crops which has been reflected in some better prices. But what might the future hold for UK farming following the government’s consultation on future domestic agricultural policy?

13:30-14:40: Crop Protection post-Brexit

Chaired by: NFU Deputy President Guy Smith

Speaker: NFU Senior Regulatory Affairs Adviser Chris Hartfield 

What does the future hold for the availability and use of crop protection products in the UK after next March? Brexit means the UK taking charge of how regulation is delivered but will it make any real difference when it comes to speeding up the regulation and approval process? Or will it mean farmers have to toe the same old European line?
