Anticipating worst case scenario of another hot, dry summer

UK growers advised to 'plan now' to preserve water supply

UK experts have urged the nation’s growers to focus on preserving water now, anticipating future dry spells. At the most recent meeting of the National Drought Group (NDG), experts highlighted the importance of not relying on the weather alone to have enough water for irrigation.

The NDG - made up of senior decision-makers from the Environment Agency, government, and key farming groups - said it was preparing for the worst-case scenario of another hot, dry spell this summer. The group looked at what actions could be taken with the farming sector to improve drought resilience, secure future water availability, and support food security.
