Farming Today This Week

Like all industries, farming has to meet the government's climate change target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% on 1990 levels. Charlotte Smith visits a Northamptonshire beef farmer, James Fanshawe, who has stopped using fertiliser and is slaughtering his animals younger. Both things help the farm's finances, and can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
