Opinion: Is the EU a ‘Museum of Agriculture’?
Despite the recent comments made by Woody Johnson, the US Ambassador to the UK, European agriculture is no ‘museum piece’, writes Brian Gardner at IEG Policy.
Johnson claimed that the EU is far behind the rest of world in adopting new scientific and technological tools in farming.
“It is not sustainable for the whole world to follow the EU’s ‘museum of agriculture’ approach. We have to look to the future of farming, not just the past,” he wrote in an article for The Daily Telegraph, in which he made the case for a post-Brexit US-UK trade deal.
