Farming is at a difficult crossroad, in pursuit of low carbon farming solutions the industry has been encouraged to look at options to reduce inputs, at the same time, external factors are forcing radical change on how we farm, at a pace that few can manage effectively.
With ongoing international and political uncertainty, it is hard to get a grip on where things are going. How will I cover the rising costs of electricity? How will new policy impact me? Will I get fertiliser for next year? These are all valid questions that rightly have many in the industry concerned.
This December, Farming for a Better Climate is running a roadshow of meetings across Scotland to support farmers to make informed, sound business decisions for long term success that are complementary to reducing emissions and building real business resilience. These meetings will cover the three Es of farming in a challenging time, energy, economy and efficiency, with input from a range of specialist and local consultants and other interested parties.
So, if you’re concerned over the rising costs of electricity, if you’ve had offers about farm scale renewables that sounds too good to be true, our renewables specialist, John Farquhar is the man to speak to. If you don’t understand what impact Rishi Sunak’s premiership will have on your finances, Andrew Coalter can put you at ease and if you have questions over the availability of inorganic fertilisers and the alternative methods to provide valuable nutrients to your crops, a local advisor who understands your circumstances is on hand to help.
