Farming Focus – October 2022

In the October 2022 edition of Farming Focus we consider Defra’s commitment to the environment following reports of a review of ELM, we also take a look at the Chancellor’s ‘mini-budget’ and the resulting economic fall-out; where will interest rates be next year?  Help with rising energy costs for non-domestic users will be available under the Energy Use Bill and we report on the English BPS 2022 rates just released.  Defra has also announced the projects which will be funded under the pilot phase of Landscape Recover (LR).  Finally, if you have Woodland Carbon Credits to sell, see when the next upcoming auction is.

We have two Spotlight articles this month.  The first looks at the Funding Boost for Rural Diversification and the second directs farmers to how they can receive Free farm consultancy advice from one of our consultants through the Future Farming Resilience Fund (FFRF).
