In this episode, farmers in England are to receive advance support payments – as the government tries to each a cashflow crisis caused by soaring input costs.
We speak to Defra farm minister Victoria Prentis – who explains why farmers will receive half their basic payment for 2022 six months early.
We visit the water company which is paying farmers to look after our rivers – by reducing fertiliser applications and planting trees.
Insect protein in animal diets – we discover how UK legislation is holding back what many people believe is the future for livestock feed.
On the markets, will oilseed rape prices ever stop rising

And we meet a first-time farmer from Huddersfield who is making a success of pasture-based poultry – rearing chickens on grass.
This episode of the Farmers Weekly Podcast is co-hosted by Johann Tasker and Surrey Farmer Hugh Broom, with deputy livestock editor Charlotte Cunningham.
