Farm funding: implementing new approaches

Farm support in the UK is changing. Before the UK left the EU, farmers were supported by Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) funds (£4.7 billion in 2019). The Government has committed to maintaining pre-Brexit UK farm funding levels for this Parliament, but under new types of support schemes for farmers in England. From 2021-27 the Government will phase out in England the CAP-style 'direct payments' which are based on how much land is farmed. Farmers and land managers will in future be paid to produce 'public goods' such as environmental and animal health improvements under Environmental Land Management and other new schemes.
