Second Round of Countryside Productivity Small Grant Scheme Confirmed
The government has committed £30 million for further rounds of the popular Countryside Productivity Small Grants scheme (CPSGS), which helps farmers buy the equipment they need to boost productivity and increase yields.
The first round of funding for small grants was launched in February and the government is on course to grant more than £15 million to farmers who applied to buy new kit.
This will include equipment specific to cattle, sheep and pig farmers, as well as precision farming and resource management equipment for arable farmers.
The next application window will open in early 2019, with over £30 million available for future funding rounds for farmers.
