With reduction of income from the Basic Payment Scheme over the next few years, all farmers are considering how develop their businesses.

With reduction of income from the Basic Payment Scheme over the next few years, all farmers are considering how to continue to develop their profitable farm businesses. As part of the Agricultural Transition, Defra introduced the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) in 2022 with the aim to support farmers looking after the natural environment in the course of their farming.

In this free workshop, we will look at the options available under the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI), including a deep-dive into the six new standards being introduced in 2023, and how these can be applied on your farm.

The six additional standards to be introduced in 2023 include:

  • hedgerows standard
  • integrated pest management standard
  • nutrient management standard
  • arable and horticultural land standard
  • improved grassland standard
  • low input grassland standard

Under the new schemes, on farm payments can reach an average of £200/ha depending on options chosen. During the session we will explore the payments offered, go through the application process, and what is required to comply . This will conclude with a farm walk where we will take a practical look at how SFI can work alongside the current farm practices.
