Sustainable Farming Incentive receives thousands of applications

Defra has announced that more than 10,000 farmers across England have applied for the improved Sustainable Farming Incentive since it opened for applications in September.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive provides financial help to farmers for taking actions that support food production, farm productivity and resilience, while protecting and enhancing the environment.

Based on feedback received from farmers, the Incentive has been expanded and improved to include around 50 new actions that farmers can be paid for. The application process has also been made more straightforward and farmers have more flexibility now to choose which actions work best for them.

Farmers are being encouraged to apply now, and Defra are holding webinars in February and March, as well as a presence at upcoming agricultural shows throughout England.
