Hudghton (Greens/EFA) - Successful - that is, profitable - agriculture is an essential part of the rural economy and a major influence on the viability of basic rural services, from schools to post offices. Many agri-businesses in Scotland are facing major pressure on net incomes. In addition to the farm-gate price pressures which all farmers face, Scots producers, especially those in Highland and Island areas, have to cope with high costs of transportation and other challenges such as climatic conditions. Scots food producers must be encouraged by the new CAP to capitalise on their already good reputation for natural production methods and resulting production of good quality and healthy foodstuffs, which consumers will want to choose.
