Programme
Those farmers with paraskavedekatriaphobia (a fear of Friday 13th) may have concerns about venturing out to
Trinity Park. But are those fears based on fact and scientific evidence? The next 5 years leading up to 2020 will
be very important if agriculture is to meet its targets on issues such as water quality, farmland birds, pollinators
and long term sustainability. Will a new CAP, a new Countryside Stewardship Scheme, the introduction of
greening and EFA’s help farmers deliver increased environmental benefits and still run a profitable, sustainable
business? Are the new policies, regulations and schemes an improvement on the old ones?
Suffolk FWAG has brought together a fantastic group of speakers to share their opinions, expertise and
knowledge with you on a wide range of topics.
