Catchment Sensitive Farming

Catchment Sensitive Farming (CSF) is a programme being run across England aiming to tackle diffuse water pollution from agriculture (DWPA) in order to meet the objectives of the EU Water Framework Directive.

The aim of CSF is to reduce pollution from farming by reducing sediment loss and nutrient and pesticide run-off in order to improve the water quality for fish, invertebrates and aquatic plants.
