Government opens £25 million grants scheme to help farmers boost productivity

Applicants can ask for between £3,000 and £12,000 to buy new and innovative equipment, from livestock monitoring cameras to precision farming technology, to help businesses save time and money and improve productivity.

 

Last year, new items were added to the list of the equipment available which will help farmers to benefit the environment, such as equipment designed to help minimise soil compaction in fields, monitor ammonia levels in farm buildings and increase machinery precision when applying slurry.

 

Farming Minister Victoria Prentis said: “Helping our farmers to boost their productivity is absolutely essential, and I am delighted we have been able to make £25 million in grants available to farmers to invest in the latest technology.”

Rural Payments Agency chief executive, Paul Caldwell, said: “I would encourage all our customers to consider how this offer may benefit their business or help them to prepare for their future farming and apply for a small grant.”

 

Those who were successful in applying for grants in previous rounds of the scheme will also be able to apply for different pieces of equipment within this final round up of the scheme’s limit of £12,000 per farmer.

 

The deadline for applications is midday on November 4; visit gov.uk/government/organisations/rural-payments-agency
