Sustainable Farm Incentive launched

Sustainable Farm Incentive launches today, it does include an element for small scale woodland creation and lower-level interventions for woodland management. This year it is being piloted with a few hundred applicants across England before being rolled out to all BPS applicants in March 22. The pilot is only open for farmers who currently get BPS. Our current concern is about the interrelationship between Countryside Stewardship, the new FC grant offer coming in May and ELMS in its broadest sense, especially for woodland creation/management plans. In addition to this more thinking is needed around how deer management is going to be included within the suite of interventions.
