Prof Goulson forecasts disaster for food without pollinators

Prof Goulson   forecasts disaster for food without pollinators  . When I brought up in field flower strips as part of CAP greening ,at recent Defra consultation,  I was told too complicated for the RPA inspectors to understand !!     It would appear this tick box mind-set  might cause a national disaster   . The same consultation seeks views on pollinators  !!  Me thinks  Defra have made up their minds and are humouring us at best but ignoring us in reality .
