ABSTRACT
The article reports on the dispute between farm leaders and the British Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) over government plans that would mandate arable farmers to take land out of production and cultivate it for environmental purposes in 2008 amid short food supply. Peter Kendall, president of the National Farmers Union (NFU), stressed that the organization objected to such proposal by DEFRA. The DEFRA argues that arable growers would be asked to select from various land management practices.
