Title In the clash over Dutch farming, Europe’s future arrives Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet Mongabay Media type Web Country/Territory Netherlands Date 8/09/23 Description Despite months of protests by farmers and an electoral rebuke, the Dutch government has pressed ahead with an attempt to make its farming system more ecologically sustainable.
