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.
Ways to get involved
The Future Farming Resilience Fund (FFRF) awards grants to organisations so that they can support farmers and land managers who are in receipt of Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) payments. Today, (25 March) we’re inviting organisations to apply for funding.
To improve productivity and reduce the negative impact of agriculture on our environment, we need to think about innovation and invest in research and development. In this post, I'll give an overview of the Farming Innovation Pathways competition, which is open for applications.
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.
