After a wet winter and dry summer, farmers are going into winter with low forage stocks and facing difficult decisions. We discuss the various strategies for coping with forage shortages. Meanwhile, organic sales are booming, both in the UK and across Europe. One area that is seeing growth is poultry and we visit a brand new state-of-the-art hatchery in Devon supplying organic farmers in the Southwest. Homegrown cut flowers are on the rise and we talk to three organic growers who have diversified into supplying blooms. On the technical front, we look at supplying food service, keeping pigs during extreme weather events, establishing an agroforestry system and precision farming.
