“Farmers demonstrate will for change”

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

German farmers show a willingness to put more effort into protecting the climate and resources in a position paper by German Farmer’s Association (DBV), writes Henrike Roßbach for Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. “Cultivation must not lead to harm” to the environment, climate, water or air, DBV’s president Joachim Rukwied told the newspaper. “We have homework to do. Deterioration is not acceptable,” said Rukwied. The position paper, seen by Roßbach, will be presented on Wednesday.
