Wet weather and temporary adjustments to agri-environment agreements

With rainfall nearly 60% above the 10-year average, Defra have introduced temporary adjustments and easements within the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI), the SFI Pilot, Countryside Stewardship (CS) and Environmental Stewardship (ES) for those dealing with the impacts of severe weather in England. 


Essentially, if bad weather has caused disruptions to your farming activities or affected your ability to meet the mandatory requirements set out in your agreements, the adjustments allow more time to establish or defer some activity to later in the year. The adjustments take effect from 1 October 2023 and will be reviewed on 31 July 2024.

For more information read the Defra Farming blog and the Defra official guidance.
