From crop protection to a ‘Canada-plus’ trade deal: How will Brexit affect the cereals sector?

With 2021 set to usher in a new era of change to trade, farm support and crop protection regulation, how will Brexit affect the cereals sector?

That is just one of the questions we will be asking at this year’s Brexit webinar, powered by The CropTec Show.

Chaired by Farmers Guardian chief reporter Abi Kay, the event will host a stellar line up of speakers from the NFU, Crop Protection Association (CPA) and the European Centre for International Political Economy (ECIPE), who will discuss what is on the horizon for the arable sector and how farmers will be affected on the ground.

Webinar Topics

Tom Bradshaw

  • With BPS being cut from next year, how can farmers be preparing for the changes ahead?
  • What practical steps can farmers take to plug into the new ELM scheme?
  • The NFU are putting together a white paper on how Tier 1 of how the ELMs should look – what opportunities does the new scheme present for farmers?
  • What impact will different trading relationships have on farmers on the ground?
  • What will happen to their prices? Inputs?

Dave Bench

  • Will the UK diverge from EU regulation within the crop protection sphere? If so, what implications will this have for UK farmers?
  • Will the UK continue to apply the precautionary principle?
  • What will happen to products like glyphosate – if the EU bans it, will this affect our export relationship with the EU?

Emily Rees

  • In the different scenarios with the EU: i.e. in the event of getting a ‘bog standard’ trade deal vs. no deal – what additional barriers will there be in place in terms of trade on cereals and imports?
  • What kind of additional things do we expect importers and exporters to do?
  • What impact will this have on the industry?
