Farming Today - 02/11/2010


Anna Hill hears how private business may cash in on the government's proposed sale of state-owned woodland. Farming Today visits a private wood in Norfolk where they are looking forward to getting a share of the £16 million the national forests bring in from recreation. Greenpeace is expressing concern that targets set at the United Nations Biodiversity Conference are not ambitious enough. But Mark Driscoll from WWF UK tells Farming Today that the new plans to protect more of the world's oceans and land are good news for wildlife. And after criticism that schemes which pay farmers to look after wildlife aren't providing value for money, Anna Hill visits a farm in Suffolk, where farmland birds appear to be thriving. Presenter: Anna Hill. Producer Melvin Rickarby.
