Farming Today

09/10/19 Payment by results for farmers, badger behaviour in cull areas, fortified wine

Duration: 14 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 FMLatest broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 FM

If farmers are given the chance to take control of wildlife schemes on their land, they work harder at it, and achieve better results. That's the conclusion of a report published today by the government, following a two year pilot in Yorkshire and East Anglia.
Badgers at the centre of culling areas could be spreading bovine tuberculosis further afield than expected, according to a study by scientists at the Zoological Society of London and Imperial College.
And we visit a vineyard growing grapes for fortified wine.
