The AHDB Board will consider the consultation responses at its meeting on 29 January 2013 before submitting its final corporate plan, including recommended levy rates, to UK Ministers.
AHDB chief executive Tom Taylor said: "Our strategies are all about helping to make our levy payers’ businesses more competitive and sustainable, as well as being as efficient as we can be ourselves in how we undertake this work.
"There is clear evidence that more efficient businesses are more environmentally and economically sustainable. The work we do to improve business margins and productivity is also helping to deliver the environmental goods expected from agriculture and horticulture.
"Our corporate plan summarises how we propose to make a difference – on areas such as soils, animal health, export market development, in schools and with skills in the industry."
