Commercial uses of wild and traditionally managed plants in England and Scotland

Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

Abstract

During the last decade British agriculture has been dominated by issues of declining farm income, livestock diseases and loss of biodiversity. This has led to a national debate on the very role of the countryside, even challenging its historical focus on food production. Against this background of widespread concern, there is a rapidly emerging willingness and momentum ñ developing on an almost daily basis - to seek new opportunities through more diversified and sustainable forms of land use. We hope this report can contribute to this debate
