In this episode, as a mechanical failure threatens to disrupt global glyphosate supplies – we examine the impact for UK farmers.
What's the natural capital value of your farmland – we run the rule over a new tool which developers say could help farmers benefit from biodiversity net gain.
On the markets, we have the latest commodity prices and look at the prospects for oilseed rape – a crop which has seen recent record prices.
We wade through the wreckage of winter storms Eunice and Dudley as they roar across the UK – and debate the rights and wrongs of the BBC Panorama programme focusing on the dairy idustry.
And we meet blind pig producer Mike Duxbury who shows us around his Inclusive Farm project to help people with disabilities carve a successful career in agriculture.
This episode of the Farmers Weekly Podcast is co-hosted by Johann Tasker and Surrey farmer Hugh Broom, with additional reporting from Farmers Weekly arable correspondent Louise Impey and news reporter Ed Henderson.
