Following a very successful start in North Warwickshire last year, Severn Trent have re-opened this scheme which rewards farmers for producing cleaner run off from their land and improving local water quality.
The Scheme’s objective is to reduce the amount of Metaldehyde (an active ingredient found in some slug pellets) found in water courses.
Farmers can earn up to £8/Ha on winter wheat/ oilseed rape grown within the catchment area.
To find out if you are eligible or for more information please contact Una McBride.
The application window closes on 31st August 2017.
