The NFU’s BPS experts have put together a briefing, highlighting the main greening rules for fallow land and ecological focus area (EFA) catch and cover crops.
The briefing should also be read in conjunction with the published BPS guidance available on Gov.uk here.
Please pay particular attention to the catch and cover crop rules, as we have seen a number of members in previous years getting confused about the rules or forgetting to establish the crops after submitting their BPS applications.
The NFU has been working on behalf of its members to clarify the position of greening for 2021. Following the recent announcement, our teams have pulled together this Q&A document, setting out the information with regards to greening for the scheme year 2021.
