Defra makes £40m available for farm productivity grants

The government is inviting grant applications from farmers in England looking to improve productivity, or add value to meat, milk and fruit, by investing in new technology.

Defra secretary Michael Gove has announced that a pot of £40m will be made available to fund the rollout of the next stage of the Country Productivity Scheme.

The money means farmers in England are now able to apply for grant support to improve farm productivity through a diverse range of investments.
