Farming report published

A FARMING report which was 20 years in the making will be launched near Rutland on Tuesday.

Government Agriculture Minister Jim Paice MP will be at Allerton Project Farm in Loddington on Tuesday at 9.30am to launch the report on conservation.

The event will showcase the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust’s dual aims of helping farmers tackle the problems of increased crop production to feed a growing population whilst also helping to develop habitats and management techniques that boost birds, bees, rare arable plants and other wildlife.
