Case Study: Farming in the UK

Subjects / Geography / Farming

Price: £1.95 Duration: 15mins Full topic price: £14.95

The United Kingdom has a long and proud history of farming, and agriculture has helped make the UK successful and powerful.  Although the UK now imports a large majority of its fruit, vegetables and cereals, farming is still an important industry within the British Isles. This case study will look at the types of British farming, their locations and the problems, solutions and methods associated with each type. We will also examine the future of British farming to give you a well-balanced case study.
