The Welsh Government has published its latest plans for action to support the production of food, improve biodiversity, and strengthen the rural economy. The Sustainable Farming Scheme: Outline proposal for 2025 is intended to be the key to a more resilient rural economy and environment. Financial support options are set out at https://gov.wales/sustainable-farming-scheme-outline-proposals-2025. The Minister’s statement is at https://gov.wales/written-statement-publication-sustainable-farming-scheme-outline-proposals-2025.
Payment rates are still undecided and the final Scheme will not be decided until further consultations have taken place next year. There will be a transition period between current payments and those under the new Scheme.
