The expanded Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) offer will be open to new entrants for the first time and will initially comprise 102 actions, designed in collaboration with the agricultural sector, including over 20 new options to support more sustainable food production, – with payments for precision farming, agroforestry and more actions for tenants on short-term contracts. The new actions will help farmers to reduce input costs and boost yields.    In addition, further new actions will support flood preparedness, helping businesses to become more resilient to the changing climate and challenging weather conditions.      More than 50 simplified actions from Countryside Stewardship Mid Tier will be merged into SFI to streamline the application process for farmers.  Farms under 5ha and those not previously in receipt of BPS will also be able to apply.  Read more on this page
