LEAFasks: Food aside, what do you consider to be the most important thing that farming delivers?

We’re a month into 2012 already – so it’s now time for the February LEAFasks question! Remember that you can add your own answer to this one.

 

FarmingIn the first of our new monthly polls last month we asked our blog readers, “Can the EU afford CAP?”. The results are in and over 60% answered “no”. Over the festive period, Farmer’s Weekly ran a poll asking “Would farming be better off if Britain left the EU?”, which got a similarly split reaction.

There’s been a lot of talk around CAP reform recently, and the responses to our short poll indicate the relative uncertainty within the industry.

For further reading, Charles Cowap, Director, Rural Employer Engagement Development Network, Harper Adams University College (a LEAF Innovation Centre), has provided a list of CAP resources and links on his blog here.
