SFI 2023 is open now and we recommend you go onto your RPA account and see what might be available for your farm even if you are in an existing Stewardship agreement. Note, it may be possible for those with land in UELS/ELS agreements to apply for some SFI options on parcels where only boundaries were included and there are no management prescriptions on the land. Those in Stewardship can also apply for the Moorland Survey and options such as soil and hedgerow assessments and get funding for a Nutrient Management Plan.
