Today's Agricultural Transition Plan published by the Government provides the next steps towards a new era for food production and land management across the UK.

Its content will have a lasting impact on the owners of farms, estates and rural businesses, and they will now be looking for the detail needed to make important decisions about their future direction.

Carter Jonas's team is working through the information provided by the Government, including using internal data sources to assess the impact of the changes on different potential scenarios. They will be sharing findings with clients shortly.
