Three options for post-Brexit farm support explained

Three UK agricultural economists explain their favoured options for farm support post-Brexit.

Options include rewarding farmers for providing eco-system services, risk management tools and an ‘exit bond’ to help farmers adjust to life after direct payments.

It follows a meeting between Defra and the Agricultural Economics Society.

Speakers at the event included Professor Ian Hodge, of Cambridge University; Emeritus Professor Berkeley Hill, of Imperial College London; and Emeritus Professor David Harvey, of Newcastle University.
