Explainer: Why uncertain post-Brexit future awaits Northern Ireland’s farmers

The new post-Brexit situation for agriculture poses an immediate tension for Northern Ireland.

Potential problems will emerge if, for example, cross-border trade in agricultural products needs to be monitored to minimise subsidy manipulation.

The ambition of Government ministers is that the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland should be frictionless and minimise formalities.

But that ambition will be constrained by the legalities of the trading arrangements between the EU (of 27 countries) and the UK.
