Minister of State for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, George Eustice yesterday announced the launch of the Countryside Productivity Small Grant (CPSG).

The RDPE Countryside Productivity Small Grant scheme 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.  The initial offer is for £15 million of small grants of between £3,000 and £12,000 for a range of equipment and technology to be used on farms with applications due in by 14 March 2018.

Who can apply

Farmers (including livestock, dairy, arable and horticultural sectors) can apply for this grant.

When you can apply

The scheme will be open to applications from 7 February 2018 to 14 March 2018 (Midday).

The intention is that there will be further rounds of grants later in the year.  Full details are being made available on the Countryside Productivity page on Gov.uk
