GWCT’s Head of Farming Phil Jarvis on Channel 4 News


JON SNOW, CHANNEL4 NEWS: There’s some very strong language in this
report, do you think that farmers understand they’re poisoning the soil as
is expressed in this report? PHIL JARVIS, GWCT: I think the terminology sometimes, I have 11% of
my farm out of production I don’t recognize some of the language
in there, I have good soil health, I have good bee numbers, I have good bird numbers, and so I think making sure that we use the right language and we don’t just
bring it down into a very small microcosm and say well all farmers are
doing this. There are many farmers doing really good work and we’ve got to
build on that.
