Michael Gove Calls for Improvements in Technology in Farming

Michael Gove, the Secretary of State for the Department of the Environment, Food & Rural Affairs, has said that the farming industry can increase production after Brexit by improved use of technology.

Speaking at the Royal Norfolk Show being held in Norwich today, Gove said:

“Emerging technologies will play a vital role in boosting productivity and growth, unlocking the full potential of our farming industry as we adapt to a rapidly changing world and maintain our leading role on the global stage outside the European Union.

The East of England is a real hotbed of agricultural innovation and the enthusiasm and passion of the region’s farmers, who exported a record £1.6bn of food and drink last year, is truly inspirational”.
