In our consultation on the future of agriculture policy, we provided a clear direction for future farm support based on public money for public goods. As part of this, we asked for views from those in the industry including the arable sector to make sure future agricultural policy reflects the reality of life for farmers and food producers. The consultation closed on 8 May and all responses received are being analysed and will be used to inform future policy.
