Agri Bill consultation events - schedule
In March of this year, the Scottish Government published the Vision for Agriculture. The Vision outlines our ambition for Scotland to become a global leader in sustainable and regenerative agriculture, with a support framework for farmers and crofters that delivers climate mitigation, nature restoration and high-quality food production.
The Agriculture Bill Consultation is an important and necessary step in realising the Scottish Government’s Vision for Agriculture and transforming how we support farming and food production to become a global leader in sustainable and regenerative agriculture.
In support of the consultation, the Scottish Government has announced a series of consultation events that will take place over the next few months.
