Farmers and crofters have been invited to join a webinar to debate future agricultural policy in Scotland

NFU Scotland is inviting those who were unable to take part in its successful roadshow tour earlier this month to join them online on June 29 to catch up with the latest developments in Scotland’s transition from a post-Brexit Common Agricultural Policy to a new support framework – and voice their own opinions.

President Martin Kennedy and Director of Policy Jonnie Hall will both take part in the online event. Mr Hall said: “A new Scottish agricultural support framework is currently being developed which will fundamentally change the way farmers and crofters in Scotland are supported to meet new policy goals.

“The direction of travel towards 2025 is clear, underlined by the announcement last month of Track One of the National Test Programme. NFUS is adamant that a sustainable and profitable future for Scottish agriculture is critical if it is to deliver the food production, climate and nature outcomes expected. The key to that is supporting active farmers and crofters and enabling them to change and thrive," said Mr Hall.

“Hundreds of members joined us at our roadshow events to hear more about how future policy is developing and now we want to hear from those farmers and crofters who can join us online on what these changes may mean for them.”
