The Government has re-opened its Countryside Productivity Small Grants (CPSG) scheme enabling farm businesses to apply for new grants for investments in new technology, such as precision land management and dairy herd management.
A total pot of £15 million (grants between £3,000 and £12,000) is available for all farm types, including livestock, horticulture, dairy and arable businesses.
Many new items have been added to the list of equipment covered by the grants, so speak to T H WHITE Agriculture or T H WHITE Dairy today to see if your planned investment qualifies, or go to www.thwhiteagriculture.co.uk/cpsg-grants where you will find a link to the Government Handbook listing eligibility criteria.
Even if you received a grant up to £9,000 in Round 1 of the scheme, or your application was withdrawn or rejected, you can still apply in Round 2. The grants are designed to support investments which will help achieve improvements in technical efficiency, animal health and welfare, resource efficiency or nutrient management. The scheme is open for applications until midday on 3 September 2019 which can be made at www.cpsmall.org.uk
