Rural connectivity still holding back UK agriculture, survey finds https://indicerural.com/rural-connectivity-still-holding-back-uk-agriculture-survey-finds/ Mon, 09 May 2022 15:03:08 +0000 https://indicerural.com/rural-connectivity-still-holding-back-uk-agriculture-survey-finds/ Lack of action to improve rural connectivity is holding back food production and farming in the UK, reports the National Farmers’ Union.

The NFU’s new digital technology survey reveals that greater broadband and mobile connectivity is needed to meet the needs of modern food and agriculture businesses.

Respondents emphasized that rural areas should have access to the same level of digital services and infrastructure as urban areas, including better speed, coverage and reliability. This reinforces the NFU’s call for the government to prioritize digital connectivity in rural areas as part of its plan to upgrade the country.

NFU Vice President David Exwood said: “This survey makes for a very disappointing read. It shows that very little progress has been made over the past year to increase levels of broadband and mobile access in rural areas despite government promises to bring the country up to speed. This lack of digital connectivity is a huge drain on time and efficiency, as we work efficiently with one arm tied behind our back.

“Agriculture, like any other business, needs access to reliable broadband and mobile connections. They are essential to running modern food and agriculture businesses, impacting everything from access to data and use of technology to communicating with suppliers and keeping workers safe on the farm.

“Yet poor connectivity remains a real problem for farmers across the country as they work hard to increase efficiency and productivity in the face of rising costs. This puts agricultural businesses at a disadvantage, ultimately preventing us from increasing the production of sustainable and affordable British food for domestic and overseas markets.

“If the government is serious about leveling the country, it must step up its efforts now to deliver better digital services to rural areas and bridge the digital divide, which in turn will help rural communities thrive.”

The survey interviewed 846 NFU farmer and grower members between December 9, 2021 and March 13, 2022.

The survey showed that only 44% of respondents said their phone signal was sufficient for their business needs.

Eighty-three percent are unable to get a reliable mobile signal in all outdoor locations on the farm, while 38 percent found the broadband speeds sufficient for their business needs.

Thirty percent have download speeds below 2 Mbps and 49% have upload speeds below 10 Mbps. Only 24% have access to ultra-fast download speeds of over 24 Mbps.

Varadkar says no farmer will be told to stop farming or reduce herd size https://indicerural.com/varadkar-says-no-farmer-will-be-told-to-stop-farming-or-reduce-herd-size/ Sun, 08 May 2022 18:30:08 +0000 https://indicerural.com/varadkar-says-no-farmer-will-be-told-to-stop-farming-or-reduce-herd-size/

No farmer will be told to stop farming or reduce herd size in order to meet tough climate change targets, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar told a Fine Gael conference on the agriculture and rural Ireland.

He said Ireland would take “reasonable” steps to meet the government’s target of a 51 per cent cut in carbon emissions by 2030.

Mr Varadkar was speaking at a day-long seminar in Tullamore, Co Offaly on Saturday attended by more than 400 party members, including a large number of party ministers, TDs and senators.

Asked at a press conference about recent research which predicted that to meet the 30% sector cut for agriculture, some 50,000 jobs would be lost in agriculture and sector losses would be £4 billion euros a year, he said he didn’t necessarily agree with that. prediction. “The agriculture sector is actually being asked for the lowest reduction of any sector,” he replied.

“No one will be told their car is going to be confiscated. No one will be told their factory is going to close. No foreign investor who wants to invest in Ireland will be told they are not welcome.

“No farmer will be told to stop farming or reduce the number of cattle or animals they own. So you know what I really want to say to people as a message of reassurance, we’re going to set goals and we’ll do whatever we can to achieve whatever makes sense.

“But (we won’t) as it would lead to a reduction in the food we produce. It will make no sense in a world where there are people who need to be fed every day,” he said.

Carbon farming

During the day-long seminar there were sessions on markets, security, climate action and new economic opportunities for rural Ireland, with discussions exploring micro-generation, solar farming as well as carbon farming.

Mr Varadkar said it is the responsibility of society to ensure that we can have farmers with better incomes and more stable incomes.

“The best way to achieve this is to allow farmers to have several sources of income. They include carbon farming, as many industries would be willing to pay farmers to offset carbon.

“And then there is microgeneration which offers huge opportunities to give farmers a stable source of additional income.

“Farmers tell me they want to do this, they want to get into micro-generation, they want to put solar panels on the roofs and they want the government to facilitate this. For this, it is essential to put in place a tariff or a minimum payment that makes this viable for the farmers so that there is a return on investment for them.

Scandal

Proposed regulations to ban the commercial sale of turf from September stormed the ranks of coalition partners Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael last month, with ministers and backbench MPs expressing anger over to this decision.

Asked about the turf problem, he said it was not solved yet. Mr Varadkar said there was a need to reduce the number of pollutants in the air in rural Ireland as well as in urban areas.

That said, he added that it was necessary to find a compromise solution.

“We are clear as a party that people who have the right to cut grass will be protected, there is no doubt about it, as well as people who have traditionally given grass to neighbors and friends, or even sold grass. small-scale grass in their communities.

He said turf distribution like this was really happening on a ‘de minimis’ level and was not really the cause of air pollution. “We just have to get it right and don’t want a sledgehammer to crack a nut.”

Historic photos of Edinburgh show the farming past of the capital’s western communities https://indicerural.com/historic-photos-of-edinburgh-show-the-farming-past-of-the-capitals-western-communities/ Sat, 07 May 2022 17:06:26 +0000 https://indicerural.com/historic-photos-of-edinburgh-show-the-farming-past-of-the-capitals-western-communities/

West Edinburgh is known for its green residential areas which are teeming with local businesses.

But what many locals forget is that the area was once made up mostly of farmland and its associated businesses.

Corstorphine as a rural village only officially joined Edinburgh in the 1920s as part of the capital’s expansion plans.

At that time the small village, together with the areas of Broomhouse, East Craigs and South Gyle, was mainly agricultural land.

New photos from the Corstorphine Trust archives, which have been shared with Edinburgh Liveshow the area as it once was.

The images, which range from the 1930s to the 1960s, illustrate the rural history of the now residential communities.

In the first image shared, a farmer can be seen leading his sheep on Sycamore Terrace heading north towards Bowling Green in 1930.

The houses to the right of the picture are said to still be there.

The Shepherd’s Head is just over the corner of the Bowling Green wall with a spotted cottage in the back center.

The second image appears to show the Gylemuir Road pigsties and dairies.

The Trust believe the image was taken from the roof or a high-level window of the Back of Lamonts (Securex) building which was once the site of PC World.

The photo, believed to have been taken in the early 1960s, looks south and the houses downstairs are at street level in Gylemuir Road, roughly where electric car charging stations are placed in the car park Tesco.

These pigsties and logs were long, narrow strips of land.

The bands reached Gylemuir Road on what is now the Tesco car park and stopped around where the Tesco petrol station is now.

In the middle of the picture you can make out the Weterbroom houses and the school.

The next place is “selling pigs”.

After the Second World War, Mr. Willie Gray of South Gyle Farm established a remarkable herd of “big white hogs” – “The Gyle Herd”.

These pigs have won championships all over the UK.

The annual draft sales were held in May each year, and the photo is of the draft sale on Thursday 24 May 1951 at South Gyle Farm.

The man in the dark suit is Willie Gray and the man next to him in the white coat and black hat, holding a book, is the auctioneer.

The sale that day had 65 tuberculin-tested Large White IN-Pig gilts and eight tuberculin-tested Large White boars.

Next we have an image from 1953 which shows potato picking on fields which are now filled with Broomhall houses.

The gray slate roofs behind the horse are the cottages on Ladywell Avenue which are next to the lane that crosses Dovecot Road.

The final image shows the farmers field in East Craigs where a farmer harvests a crop.

The image resembles the Mid Yoken pub emblem found on Craigmount Brae today.

Numerous farms, dairies, piggeries and market gardens existed until the 1970s.

Dr Neil Hudson, MP for Penrith and The Border, joined the group who wrote to Johnson asking him to present a new white paper designed to grow the rural economy, following the release of a major new report by a multi-stakeholder group.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Rural Business and the Rural Powerhouse released a report last week outlining how £43billion could be added to the UK economy.

The report, titled ‘Leveling up the rural economy’, sets out 27 clear steps to unlock the economic potential of the countryside, adding up to £43billion in gross value added (GVA).

Now MPs and peers from across the political spectrum are calling on Johnson to lead a government-wide effort to unlock business potential in rural communities.

Hudson said: “The government needs to start being ambitious for the rural economy.

“I want to see Penrith and The Border thrive.

“I want it to be a place where people can afford to live, get a good job and achieve their aspirations.

“Penrith and The Border is one of the most rural parts of the country, and we are a hugely enterprising group, but with, but too often, the specific needs of areas like ours are overlooked in national policy-making.

“85% of rural businesses are not engaged in agriculture or forestry, and they often face structural barriers to success.

“Given that 23% of all businesses in England are based in the countryside, and many more in the other three UK countries, it is clear that removing these barriers could generate considerable economic growth, for the good of their local communities. and the country as a whole. »

In a separate letter to Johnson, the Country Land and Business Association (CLA) and the Federation of Small Businesses added their support for major government reform.

The letter said: “We are deeply ambitious for rural Britain.

“The countryside is not a museum, it is an economic power in its own right.

“We believe in the extraordinary potential of rural communities to create opportunity and prosperity for everyone, regardless of background or circumstance.”
