The government's FTFIFP (Farming Transformation Fund Improving Farm Productivity) grant scheme, has a budget of £25m and was aimed at boosting food production. Find out more about the scheme below.

The FTFIFP scheme launched on 19 January and closed for initial applications on 16 March 2022. 

It was aimed at boosting food production by improving farm productivity through the use of cutting edge robotics and technology.

New slurry management systems

Farmers were also able to apply for grants towards new slurry management systems. This meant they could purchase equipment that lowers the acid in slurry which in turn increases the nutrients for plants and reduces ammonia emissions and pollution.

Doing this will contribute to government commitments to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
