On Wednesday 27 March, we held a webinar for upland farmers to learn more about the funding opportunities available in England in 2024.

The webinar focussed on the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI)  Policy leads from this area, colleagues from the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) and a farmer already in SFI, were there to answer your questions.

Apply now for the SFI 

We’re rewarding farmers for farming practices that help produce food sustainably and protect the environment, through the SFI. 

It's open for applications today. Join more than 12,500 farmers who have already submitted an application. 

Apply now and you’ll receive your first payment 4 months after your SFI agreement starts. After that you’ll be paid every 3 months, so you have regular, reliable income. 

You can add actions to your agreement annually - or take out an additional agreement when further actions become available.  

There are 23 actions on offer. You can now check what SFI actions you can get paid to do on your land type.  

If you wait for the new actions coming in summer, you could lose out on funding.
