British farmers warn of potato and veg shortages later this year

Farmers are warning the food shortage crisis will get worse later in the year, due to the prolonged dry spell and a shrinkage of irrigated crop production, as Philip Case reports for Farmers Weekly.

A combination of a lack of rainfall over the past eight months, rising input and energy costs and stagnant supermarket prices is forcing growers to cut back on crop production.

Many farmers in East Anglia, which grows a significant proportion of the nation’s fruit and vegetable crops, potatoes and sugar beet, are cutting production this growing season.
