Manage episode 326407557 series 2668621
In this episode, as farm input costs soar, we ask: how can farmers mitigate the impact of ag-inflation on their businesses?
Input costs have risen by a whopping 46% over the past 18 months, according to the AgInflation Index, published by the AF Group.
We visit a group of farmers working to improve soil carbon – benefiting their businesses as well as helping to reach Net Zero targets.
On the markets, we're ringside with the latest beef and sheep update from Skipton mart.
Find out how you can take part in Open Farm Sunday – and help spread the farming message.
And we go inside the Health Hut – a mobile health centre which is making it easier for farmers to look after themselves in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.
