The Government have announced that farmers can now register their interest for the new Sustainable Farming Incentive scheme from today, Wednesday 30th August, using the online Rural Payments service.

The application window will officially open on the 18th September but if you are considering applying for SFI then we suggest that you take this opportunity to register your interest asap, with the concern being that the demand may be such that they close the window to further applications at some point. There is no obligation to then make an application, but if you have not got your expression of interest into the system then you may miss out.

Further information from DEFRA can be found HERE.
