Growing Concerns

Alongside images of flooded towns and villages, we are now being bombarded with reports about the recent heavy rain and floods damaging the quantity and quality of wheat, pea and potato crops.

It is clear, then, that the weather's effects on our domestic food production are not going to be short-lived.
