ELMS and the agricultural transition

By Jane Campbell

9th February 2021

FFCC has submitted a response to the EFRA Committee's inquiry into Environmental Land Management and the agricultural transition.

In it, we highlight the need for ELM schemes to:

  • support good business - both financial and whole farm planning
  • pay appropriately for activities for public benefits
  • encourage innovation and peer learning
  • back early and no regrets actions
  • maintain support for early adopters of agri-environment schemes

if they are to be attractive to farmers.
