Farmers in the Midlands are able to apply for a grant to protect local watercourses. The ‘Severn Trent Environmental Protection Scheme’ supports farmers in making improvements to their farm management and infrastructure to reduce the risk of pollution into local water courses from fertiliser, manure and dirty water.
This is a great opportunity to get financial support for making farm improvements. Funding is available for a range of farm and field works including for example pesticide handling areas, watercourse fencing, cover crops and roofing over livestock areas.
The application window opens on the 1st January 2018 and closes on 16th March 2018.
If you think you may be eligible to apply for the scheme, please contact Rostons on 01829 773000 and ask to speak to Fran Griffiths who will be happy to assist in submitting your application.
