Defra has introduced temporary adjustments and easements within the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI), the SFI Pilot, Countryside Stewardship (CS) and Environmental Stewardship (ES) to support farmers and land managers dealing with the impacts of severe weather in England.   Essentially, if bad weather has caused disruptions to your farming activities or affected your ability to meet the mandatory requirements set out in your agreements, the adjustments allow more time to establish or defer some activity to later in the year.   They cover the period from 1 October 2023 to 31 July 2024 for agreements that are now live.   The adjustments will automatically apply – you don’t need to submit a request.    Read more on this page.
