English potato growers invited to apply.
APPLICATIONS for the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) scheme opened yesterday in England (Monday, September 18th ), with those who have expressed interest in the scheme, being invited to apply first.
The scheme has been revised and expanded since it first opened in June 2022, now offering individual ‘actions’ instead of land standards. There will be a total of 23 actions to apply for, each with competitive payment rates to ensure anyone in CS Mid Tier is not at a disadvantage.
In addition, an SFI management payment of £20/ha up to the first 50 hectares, will be available for most applicants.
* Hurry and make a nomination for the following - entry deadline is tomorrow ...
