Policy Priorities for #NFUSHarvest

  • Ensuring Scottish growers can produce on a level playing field. If key competitors can produce to lower standards with a lower cost of production, then Scotland will be      unable to compete post-Brexit.
  • Fair access to Agricultural Support mechanisms for all  sectors that compliments the practicalities of food production.
  • An immigration system that takes into account the needs of the labour market and reflects the reliance of both the agricultural industry and food and drink supply chain on non-UK workers. 
  • A science-based approach to the regulation of crop production—from the use of plant protection products through modern plant breeding techniques.
