Growers have already seen abstraction licence cuts and many more are expecting reductions between 40% and 60% and up to 90% in some catchments as planned abstraction reforms are implemented to meet future environmental destination targets.

An information event, entitled Planning for abstraction reform: Are you ready to protect your water rights? is being organised by the UK Irrigation Association and will take place at Orton Hall Hotel, Peterborough, on March 6th.
