The UK government published on the 23 August 2018 the first in a series of technical notices designed to prepare the UK for the possibility of a no-deal Brexit. Seventy separate 'technical notices' were due to be published in August and September 2018. The notices would include advice for businesses, citizens and public bodies. The UK Government considered that a no-deal Brexit scenario 'remains unlikely' but believed it should 'prepare for all eventualities' until the outcome of the negotiations with the EU was known.

A ‘no deal’ Brexit would mean that the UK left the EU on the 29 March 2019 and become a third country without a formal agreement in place between the UK and the EU.

Two of the guidance papers issued on the 23 August 2018 covered farming issues:

+ Farm payments if there’s no Brexit deal
+ Receiving rural development funding if there’s no Brexit deal

There were also a number of further guidance papers of interest to those in agriculture and food production:

+ Developing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) if there’s no Brexit deal
+ Producing and processing organic food if there's no Brexit deal
