In March, we invited farmers to express interest in taking part in the first Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot. In this post, we'd like to share the response and what we’ll do next.
Things we're doing
To many, cross compliance is something of a mystery. I want to explain what it is, why it’s important and what we are doing to improve it.
In the Agricultural Transition Plan, we said we believe there is a way for the industry to increase productivity in an environmentally sustainable way without relying on Direct Payments. In this post, I'll give an overview of the fund.
The Sustainable Farming Incentive is a new scheme for farmers that rewards environmental land management. Before it launches in 2022, the scheme will be piloted with farmers. From today, you can register your interest to take part.
In this post, I'll provide an overview of our approach to payments for farmers taking part in the Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.
Since publishing the Agricultural Transition Plan, we've been invited to join a number of panel discussions, Q&A sessions and webinars, hosted by external organisations. This post contains video links to some of those events.
Farm visits are an opportunity for farmers to tell us about the issues they are facing and to make clear the realities of farming. Due to COVID-19, physical farm visits stopped. The experience was too valuable to abandon, so we created virtual farm visits instead. Michael Sturla shares more.
Social Researcher, Hannah Baker shares how her team is working to ensure farmers’ voices are ‘on the table’ during discussions about farming policy.
We want to improve the way we set and enforce the rules for agriculture, animal welfare and the environment. We invited a people to join us in the first in a series of interactive workshops to look at the issues and share their views. In this post, Chris Dennis shares what the team learned.
