Region 1-District 1 Updates

Opinion
Blaming someone or something for the wrongdoing, mistakes or faults of others for convenience, is an ancient tactic. Scapegoating is used to deflect people away from seeing true agendas of players and in covering the mistakes of those who didn’t prevent the agenda becoming reality. There appears to be a full-blown case of Scapegoating happening
Opinion
The NFU agrees that the use of the new ag-technology, implied by “precision agriculture”, can improve many aspects of farming. However, our most important question always is whether or not the best interests of farmers are being served by innovations. Or is this another way to consolidate corporate control, making a possibly good thing into a deeper threat for independent farmers?
