“How Can We Plan in a Crisis?”
Farmers and growers are normally exposed to a wide range of risks arising from weather variability, natural hazards, and pests and diseases. Agricultural and fresh food production relies heavily on the natural resource base and climate conditions. Similarly, shocks to the market from both domestic and international sources, like supply shortages due to drought or fluctuations in exchange rates, can result in price volatility. These risks directly affect the economic returns from agriculture, the livelihood of our farmers and growers, and in the long run, the capacity of farmers to invest and innovate.
But, what we have all experienced in the last 12 months is totally unprecedented with souring energy prices across the board.
How this will affect the harvest and what the knock-on for next year will be is hard to gauge.
We go live with the AHDB and a number of key industry experts to shine a light on this hugely important subject and give direct guidance to the sectors as to how the risks can be potentially mitigated.
