Coronavirus news and advice for farmers and agriculture

Like many others sectors of the economy, Scotland’s farmers and crofters are facing a range of challenges resulting from the COVID-19 (coronavirus) epidemic.

The National Farmers Union Scotland (NFUS) has launched a new dedicated coronavirus section on its website providing regular updates and news on issues affecting Scotland’s farmers and crofters.

There are specific areas including the latest Coronavirus farm guidance, frequently asked questions and answers and a section for farm employment opportunities.

The employment-matching service that NFU Scotland has launched links farmers and growers who are experiencing worker shortages with individuals who have been made redundant or put on unpaid leave as a result of coronavirus.
