The RDPE Countryside Productivity Small Grant (CPSG) scheme Round 2 is now open. It provides funding for farmers to purchase equipment to improve the productivity of their farm. The scheme is different to other parts of the Countryside Productivity scheme as it uses an online application process and is targeted at supporting investment for specific pieces of agricultural equipment.
Farmers can apply for funding towards specific items of equipment listed at Annex 3 of the Countryside Productivity Small Grants scheme Round 2 handbook.
All the items have been identified following consultation with industry groups and suppliers as helping achieve improvements in either:
- Technical efficiency
- Animal health and welfare
- Resource efficiency, or
- Nutrient management
Several types of IAE livestock handling equipment are compliant with the scheme and are available from all Carrs Billington stores.
