Farmland

Flooded farmland can be devastating for farmers livelihoods.

Failing crops as a result of flooding can also lead to food security fears and increasing food prices for us all.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has estimated that 35,000 hectares (135 square miles) of high-quality horticultural and arable land in the UK will be flooded at least once every three years by the 2020s.
