On with the show:
We asked an Independent Economist whether we'd missed the low interest rate boat when it comes to longer term borrowing? Plus, we discussed the OCR tomorrow, post-Covid global recovery and high international commodity prices.
Dr Jacqueline Rowarth:
One of New Zealand's farming academics challenged whether the levels of nitrates in our drinking water was injurious to our health.
The Kiwi selling New Zealand venison in Shanghai said his latest venture was setting up the first international New Zealand venison BBQ day. We also discussed the no-nonsense Chinese attitude to the Covid vaccine rollout and Asia's largest food and beverage trade show.
Farmer Tom Martin:
Our UK farming correspondent talked about a free trade deal with Australia, regenerative agriculture, the vaccine rollout and whether Boris's impending nuptials will be good for poll ratings.
We talked weather and why massive swells on the east coast could be Godsend for drought ravaged farmers.
