Managing land for public good

In 2021, British agriculture began its transition away from the EU’s basic payment scheme, also referred to as the common agricultural policy (CAP), to a new system for farmers and land managers to better promote public good. 

A key part of this change will be environmental land management schemes to increase the environmental benefits of agriculture, restore nature, nurture the soil, improve air and water quality and provide habitats for wildlife. 

We will continue to use any support payments we receive in the spirit they were intended, supporting our commercial farming operations and enhancing and restoring sensitive environmental habitats.
