Defra has today announced plans for piloting its new Sustainable Farming Incentive Scheme.

They are looking for several hundred farmers to be involved in piloting the scheme this year in advance of the scheme being rolled out more widely in 2022.  Participants can choose from an initial set of eight standards to build their own agreements and more details including pilot scheme payment rates are in this link:  Sustainable Farming Incentive Pilot.  Look out for more information in this week’s E News.
