Supporting Britain's farmers

Today the government set out detailed plans for the nation's farming sector, supporting farmers to produce food sustainably while protecting nature.

  • Farmers are at the heart of our economy – producing our food and conserving the land it comes from – so we must help to ensure that their practices are both environmentally and financially sustainable.
  • That is why today the government announced that the roll out of the Sustainable Farming Incentive will be accelerated, providing funding for farmers for managing hedges for wildlife, planting nectar-rich wildflowers, and managing crop pests without using harmful insecticides.
  • This will ensure that farmers are financially supported as they protect our environment, while making our food production more sustainable.
