This week we return to our science series. Our producer Claire Mutimer meets Dr Chris Ridout from the John Innes Centre to find out about heritage barley, how it’s helping to breed resistance into modern crops and finding an unexpected new lease of life through craft breweries.

Andrew’s back in the hot seat to give the market report for week commencing 12/11/2018 and in Farmchat Andrew and Webby talk about Ian’s mastery of the French language during his recent trip to Rouen, as well as the recent USDA report. To ease proceedings along they enjoy a drop of Barsham Oaks 3.6% from Barsham Brewery.
