The NFU is lobbying government on behalf of members to improve agri-environment schemes, so that the schemes can work alongside productive farming.
We are calling for improvements to Countryside Stewardship by influencing Natural England, Defra and other government bodies.
Farmers must have a framework to help them manage the environment, according to the panel in the environment early bird session.
In Countryside Stewardship records are checked more frequently than in ELS/ HLS. The extra checks are a trade-off for a reduced inspection regime. Without these additional checks there would be more full inspections of agreements.
