Farmers and other land managers will also have the opportunity under the new Environmental Land Management scheme to be paid for delivering the following public goods set out in the 25 Year Environment Plan: clean air; clean and plentiful water; thriving plants and wildlife; protection from and mitigation of environmental hazards; beauty, heritage and engagement; mitigation of and adaptation to climate change. Sustainable farming methods can contribute to many of the environmental public goods that land managers will be incentivised to deliver through the ELM scheme.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Supporting the UK food and drink sector to increase its exports is a priority for Defra. The work we are doing to increase market access for pork to China is a great success, and has boosted the value of UK pork exports there from £19.6 million in 2014 to £43.6 million in 2018. China's domestic market consumes 55 million metric tonnes of pork per year and there is real potential for UK industry to continue to increase exports of pork products such as pig trotters and heads. We will also continue to build on our strong international reputation for food standards and premium exports, which help drive the demand for UK produce in China.</p><p> </p> more like this
