Funding boost for farmers to tackle water pollution

Over the last 15 years, the Catchment Sensitive Farming (CSF) programme has been one of the main ways to help farmers tackle pollution which results from manure, fertiliser and soil running off into rivers when it rains.

The funding for the programme will now be almost doubled, with an additional £17m over the next three years.

This means it will cover 100% of England’s farmland, up from 40% of its current coverage, with every farmer able to access advice and support by March 2023 to help them access a range of solutions to reduce pollution.

You can read all about this on the government's website by following the link below and Alan Falshaw, our own Farm Business Consultant, can be contacted for further information on 07425 186127.
