Funding is available for 15 places in the Highlands and islands.

A group of eight agricultural organisations has formed a coalition to help inform government about key issues affecting the sector during Brexit negotiations.

Known as the Agri-Brexit Coalition, the group sets out to “inform and influence UK governments in order to achieve a positive outcome to negotiations for UK agriculture as well as the EU and the wider world”.

Coalition coordinator David Caffall, who is chief executive of the Agricultural Industries Confederation, said: “Whatever shape UK agriculture takes over the coming years, the industry and the nation will depend on higher efficiency and productivity along with successful relationships with other countries.

“Members of this coalition are the principal means by which knowledge is transferred and technical advance implemented on farm. This is a collective resource which we can offer to UK Governments providing a ‘one-stop shop’ of expertise. ”

The members of the Agri-Brexit Coalition are the: Agricultural Engineers Association; Agricultural Industries Confederation; British Society of Plant Breeders; Central Association of Agricultural Valuers; Crop Protection Association; Grain and Feed Trade Association; National Association of Agricultural Contractors; and National Office of Animal Health.
