  • Well done Callum - This is a great overview of the main points and impact of the CAP (common agricultural policy) on the main changes to farming practice in the past 50 years - One main point not covered is the increase of fallow farm land (set-a-side or disused farmland) as the EU now produces too much produce/outputs (food mountains), many see this as a waste of money as farmers are paid to do nothing and have little costs in maintaining set-a-side land, But as farmers diversify it brings many people back to live in the countryside and even attracts younger generations too.
