In 2019 the “Farming is Changing” booklet was released (which can be read here) and “The Path to Sustainable Farming: An Agricultural Transition Plan 2021-2024” was published at the end of November 2021 (and can be read here.) Most recently, at the end of July 2022, the “New Farming Policies and Payments in England” booklet has been released, which you can read here.
These documents explain the changes that are being made to agricultural payments including the phase out of BPS, the new Environmental Land Management Scheme, capital grants and Countryside Stewardship.
