Climate change has really made itself felt this year with records tumbling across Europe. And if that wasn’t enough, there are soaring energy costs, supply chain shortages and rampant inflation. Its not an easy time for any farmer or grower. Inflation is a real worry. Sophie Kirk and Beth Kelsey of Soil Association Certification have drilled down into the figures and given their assessment of the market. Megan Lee has been looking at the future of local abattoirs and their vital role in local food chains, while Dom Blake has visited two licensees that used crowdfunding campaigns to fund local food movements. Sally Morgan has delved into the world of agrivoltaics which is gaining interest around the world. On the technical side, Felicity Elder discusses how land can become contaminated with pharmaceuticals through the use of organic amendments, and Marina O’Connell and Amanda Cuthbert of the Apricot Centre in Devon explain their approach to ‘regen ag’ As usual there are technical articles, book reviews and a look at business and market issues.
