Now that SAF applications have been completed, it is a timely reminder that the deadline for this year’s Agri-Environment Climent Scheme (AECS) is under a month away. The 2021 round is very much a restricted round with limited option; however, you may still be eligible to apply.
The scheme has been limited to five different target areas for applications to be based on, they are:
- Organic Farming – both organic conversion and organic maintenance.
- Protected Areas (Directly benefiting Designated sites such as SSSIs, SACs and SPAs)
- Management for Priority Bird Species outwith designated sites (Corncrakes, Corn Buntin and Farmland Waders)
- Slurry Storage in Priority Catchment Areas
- Improving Public Access
