Leaving the EU presents a major opportunity for UK agriculture. We will be able to design new policies which specifically benefit the agriculture sector, the countryside and the environment. As part of this, we will determine what new systems we may need to implement these policies effectively, how existing IT infrastructure could be adapted, and the costs of doing so.
