Farmers’ Weekly Transition Hub – helping farm businesses to secure a sustainable future

Transition is a new initiative from Farmers’ Weekly aimed at securing a sustainable future for your farm business.  British farmers stand on the cusp of a new agricultural revolution when they will be expected to do much more than produce food: improving biodiversity, soil health, air and water quality, and storing carbon to help mitigate the impact of climate change will be part of their farm business.  All this means that farmers must refocus their farms to ensure they thrive as businesses while looking after and enhancing the environment.  The Farmers’ Weekly Transition Hub has a podcast, webinars, articles and case studies which will help you to navigate your journey to a sustainable future for British agriculture.  Visit the Transition Hub here.  

Launch of guide on monitoring soil carbon

The first fund to open is the ‘Industry-led R&D Partnerships Fund’, where farmers, growers, foresters and businesses can bid for funding to develop new technologies and practices that will help them overcome challenges and exploit new opportunities in the sector such as the use of artificial intelligence and low-emission machineries to optimise the production process, and the development of climate-resilient crops.

What the end of trailer tests means for farmers

The government has announced a package of measures to streamline the HGV test process in a move aimed at freeing up driving examiner time and helping tackle the backlog of tests.  One measure announced was the ending of the requirement that car drivers must take a practical test to get a B+E driving licence entitlement to drive heavier weight trailers over 750kg.   Trailer tests ended on 20 September, but the laws on driving a car with a trailer will not actually change until sometime after 15 November.  Until the law is actually changed all the current rules remain in place, with the legal requirement for car drivers who first passed their car test after 1 January 1997 to have passed a B+E practical test to drive trailers over 750kg in certain circumstances.  For further information on the changes please refer to this guide from the National Farmers’ Union.

The first plastic recycling survey shows that 19,974 tonnes of plastic was collected in 2018 and 24,149 tonnes was collected in 2019. Most of the plastic was sent for recycling with only 4% going to landfill.  To find out how to join the scheme please visit the Green Tractor website.
