Food safety, water management, cider celebrations
How confident are you that what you're eating is what you think it is? In the wake of the horse meat scandal and investigations at poultry supplier 2 Sisters and meat supplier Russell Hume, there are calls to boost funding for food safety inspections. Now, MPs on the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee want assurances that the government will put more money towards the Food Standards Agency's National Food Crime Unit - while there have been calls from some quarters for greater transparency in FSA investigations.
Water is always a hot topic in the agriculture sector. While farmers in the east of the country struggle with shortages, those in the west battle flooding. Add to that arguments over agriculture taking water from rivers, or polluting waterways with run-off from fields, and you can understand why discussions about water management are rarely short. All this week, Farming Today looks at the big issues around water and agriculture - including whether farmers are doing enough to manage the resource... Charlotte Smith speaks to the National Farmers Union's Water Advisor, Paul Hammett.
An apple farm in Somerset is celebrating 100 years of cider-making.
