Chaired by David Exwood, NFU Vice President

There are still more questions than answers on the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) and other publicly-funded environmental incentives, like Countryside Stewardship Plus, which are designed to encourage biodiversity, protect and enhance precious habitats, and prevent pollution. The insight and experience of our two speakers helps to address those questions.

Janet Hughes, Programme Director at the Future Farming and Countryside Programme, provides an update on Government-funded schemes to encourage greater biodiversity, landscape and wildlife protection.

Clive Bailye, from TWB farms, Staffs, provides a unique insight into the practical and economic opportunities and challenges of the SFI, based on his experience of taking part in the pilot environmental land management scheme.
