to the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB)

Our purpose is to inspire our farmers, growers and industry to succeed in a rapidly changing world. We equip the industry with easy to use, practical know-how which they can apply straight away to make better decisions and improve their performance. AHDB is a statutory levy board and is funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain. Read more here.

AHDB is calling upon the industry to unite and mobilise to address the productivity challenge.
