How the Sustainable Farming Incentive will develop

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: environmental land management schemes, Sustainable Farming Incentive

Last week we published details on how the new Sustainable Future Incentive scheme will work in 2022. The Sustainable Farming Incentive in 2022 is very much a starting point. We are rolling out the scheme incrementally. We want to test, learn and improve as we go, and expand the scheme to fit the available budget each year. In this post, I'll give you an idea of how the scheme will expand over the next few years.
