The NFU is involved in a number of the environmental land management tests and trials from leading bids to run a test through to being part of the steering groups. NFU staff are keeping a watching brief on a number of on-going tests and trials.
NFU-led ELM tests and trials that have been submitted in the phase two call for expressions of interest. It will be the summer before we know if the bids were successful. The bids were:
- Public Engagement
- Net Zero Plus
- Testing of farmer monitoring for broad scheme
- South Shropshire
- Shropshire & Staffordshire Arable Plain
- Farmer Cooperatives and Producer Organisations Scoping Study
The NFU is supporting a number other organisations that have put forward expressions of interest in phase two. In addition, there are projects resulting from the phase one call for expressions of interest that the NFU is either directly involved in through being part of the steering group or indirectly, maintaining a watching brief.
