This is a new scheme to reward environmental land management. It aims to help improve biodiversity and create greener landscapes, promoting cleaner air and water and helping to protect against environmental risks such as climate change and flooding.
The Sustainable Farming Incentive scheme launches in 2022, but before its launch, it needs to be piloted during 2021 with farmers being paid to provide feedback to DEFRA. This is part of a process called ‘co-design’, which means working with farmers to make sure the scheme works in practice.
Applications for the first round of the pilot scheme need to be made by midnight on 11th April 2021.
