Agriculture And Horticulture Development Board (AHDB)
The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) is a statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain and managed as an independent organisation (independent of both commercial industry and of Government).
Our purpose is to inspire our farmers, growers and industry to succeed in a rapidly changing world.
AHDB deliver transformational projects to drive productivity and boost farming and supply chain businesses. They want the industry to thrive in a rapidly changing world and continue to produce high-quality food, maintain our beautiful landscape and leave a legacy for generations to come.
A traffic light system based on financial and environmental performance for each of Ross Hewson’s fields is one of the tactics he uses to drive his business forward. In the first of a series on preparing for change, we visit his top-performing north Lincolnshire business.
Comparing your costs of production against others is an option open to all farmers, but it is not always utilised. Alex Black spoke to Richard Orr about how AHDB’s Farmbench programme is allowing him to delve into the story behind the figures.
