Farming is vitally important to everyone on the planet but it can come under threat from organisations, companies and even the environment. These issues can have a devastating effect on rural communities as they limit options for farmers, spread misinformation, damage the environment and can even shut down entire industries. These issues always need to be addressed, but some must be addresses with caution to make sure all parties get a fair deal, a equal say and all aspects of issue are addressed.
