AERU's impact

AERU's work has had an impact which belies the small size of the group, such that it has not only directly affected on-farm practices around the world, but has also been influential in steering policy both at home and abroad in fields covering agricultural production, the environment and the food chain as a whole. Some key elements of this are detailed on the following pages, but for further information please don't hesitate to contact the AERU team.
