Why not dump all tbese schemes and their complications, remain with the well understood SFP and add some more incentives for improvements? Oh, does money come into this? I'd forgotten about that!

Grass only has an economic use when processed through ruminant animals with an end market value….Hence grass and the very reason hedges were planted to create fields can’t fit any sort of vegan agenda…
You can leave grass ungrazed.. harvest the seed then bale the dry stalk.. put it through a pelleter..dry it and sell it as fuel... you dont have to use livestock.. its a choice... your choice

£15 a jab apparently, an extra £5 on weekends !! And ,of course they get the nurses to do it! All down to the great negotiation by Blair government.
Blair was nearly two decades ago. Tories have been in power / control since 6 May 2010, so 11 years by my reckoning. And yet we till blame Blair. If Tories think that was a poor contract what was and is to stop them renegotiating. When will folk stop blaming Blair this Century or next? No apologist for Blair but feck his cock ups were a long time ago. Bad as these Tories still blaming the EU - they took back control, so get on with change then. Rant over, standing down for coffee.

I have read the policy paper you posted and agree that this will not happen as it might envoke some common sense... try lobbying EFRA directly??

Thank you. Yes I am lobbying the members of the Defra ELMS engagement group. I actually received an email from Defra asking me not to, so on that basis I would encourage everyone on here who has views on what the SFI should look like to send them in, contact details on the attached.

Oh I don't know, having heard one of them having a hissy fit on the radio a couple of days ago about the ways in which ELMS is being amended in favour of farmers, I think they are certainly engaged with the process.

The thing Ag has to do - the only thing Ag has ever had to do with all of this - is to show them that making it work for farmers is their only hope of seeing environmental gains.

Is there a payment schedule ?
