Farming Focus – March 2024

In the March 2024 edition of Farming Focus we take at look at Rishi Sunak’s announcements at the NFU Conference, including a doubling of the SFI Management Payment.  We notify readers that it is now possible to transfer delinked (BPS) payments if necessary.  We also discuss the latest profitability figures for our Friesian Farm model.  In Wales the Woodland Creation grant is now open until November, have a look to see the application windows for other Welsh schemes.  Finally we remind English farmers that the Improving Farm Productivity Grant is open until 21st March; please contact one of our consultants if you require any help in apply for this grant.

The Spotlight article this month takes a look at the Farming Equipment and Technology Fund (FETF) which is expected to open shortly.  The guidance is already available and we provide links to the equipment (including new items) which are available under three themes in this Round.
