Over the last few days, yet another bout of heavy rain has hit parts of the British Isles. The mainstream news told us about flooded roads, homes and businesses. If you’re a farmer or a grower, you’re used to coping with all sorts, but this year’s weather really did hit you.
Here’s what Philip Case at Farmers Weekly said today about ‘the year’s extreme weather’. He quotes Guy Gagen at the National Farmers Union, saying that the 2012 harvest was one ‘many would want to forget’. Mr Case concludes with a warning from climatologist Clare Goodess: there will probably be more years of extreme weather.
