RSA's Food, Farming and Countryside Commission report, the cost of food without pesticides, 100 years of wheat description
Should all UK farming be putting the environment before food production? Or will that make food too expensive? We hear from Sir Ian Cheshire on the new report from the RSA's Food, Farming and Countryside Commission, which recommends a radical shift in farming practices. Independent economist, Sean Rickard, argues on behalf of the Crop Protection Association, that a family food bill would rise by £786 a year if pesticides and herbicides were not used on farms. And as part of our week-long look at cereals we're talking about 100 years of wheat at The National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB). Presented by Anna Hill and produced by Beatrice Fenton.
