The magic figure is a 25pc reduction in greenhouse gasses (GHG) from agriculture by 2030. For farmers, is this the stairway to heaven or the highway to hell?

The honest answer is that nobody really knows what impact these targets will have on farming and the wider agricultural sector in the coming years. My first observation is that they are only targets on paper — it’s actions, not targets, that achieve results.
