Considerable change and uncertainty is on the horizon. With the future of domestic agricultural policy up for debate, increasing agronomic challenges and Brexit around the corner, it’s perhaps worth stepping back and taking stock of one of your most valuable assets: your rotation.

The ultimate goal is to get the most out of your rotation, from both economic and agronomic perspectives, within the confines of policy. A starting point would be to identify what the current strengths are in your rotation, as well as what is limiting its potential. Looking forward, you could also list the factors that might put your rotation at risk and the opportunities available to improve it.

With the help of industry professionals, we’ve carried out this exercise for the UK arable rotation. This has produced a list of points to consider, which while not exhaustive, can be used as a basis for evaluating your own rotation.
