Watch: webinar on the farming offer in 2024

On Friday 26 January, we held a webinar for farmers. During the session, we gave an overview of the actions and payments available through our environmental land management schemes in 2024.

This webinar was held in collaboration with the Farming Advice Service (FAS) and The Farming Forum (TFF).

Farming and Countryside Programme Director, Janet Hughes was joined by the policy lead working on the Sustainable Farming Incentive, Jonathan Marsden.

Colleagues from the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) were on hand to help answer questions.

      Hi Elizabeth,

      Good spot, sorry about that - I've amended the post - it should be Friday 26 January. FAS will update the wording on the registration link shortly.

      Thanks,
      Becky

    Hi

    There are errors on the registration form that make it impossible to complete correctly.

    If you put Adviser in as a job title the next box asks " If you selected "other," please specify. The box is red.

    There is a similar issue further down - How did you hear about this webinar? Defra farming blog and you get If "other," please specify in another red box.

    Thanks.

    This Programme commits a large allocation of Public Money. Should applications be backed up by independent verification, e.g. is the parcel of grassland really Species Rich, and what level of auditing will be introduced to justify this spend in the future, and with what consequences if fraudulent claims have been made?

      Hi Graham,

      The SFI handbook sets out the evidence we require for each action. It also includes the methods used to check that agreement holders are complying with their agreements.

      If there's an issue, we want to work with agreement holders and support them to put things right so they can carry out their actions successfully.

      The SFI handbook (page 129 onward), goes into more detail:
