The first cohort of farms will consist of 13 cereal and oilseed growers, 10 beef and lamb producers, 10 milk producers, 4 pork producers and 3 potato growers. The initial wave offers a springboard for more activity to be launched under the new five year AHDB strategy being published later this year.

Moving forward, environmental sustainability will be a key strategic focus area, especially with ELMS payments on the horizon and the industry’s aim to be carbon neutral by 2050.

Tim added: “Farmers and growers have a unique opportunity to be part of the solution to tackle climate change. The actions we take as an industry have the potential to make a real impact in the national ambition to be carbon neutral by 2050.”
