Environmental Farming BDG Scheme 14 January 2020

CAFRE are launching a new type of Business Development Group (BDG) offering (via DAERA)

 
  Farming

This will be an opportunity for farmers to focus on an increasingly important side of their farm business – environmental farming.  Groups will look at the environmental solutions that farming can provide for biodiversity, water quality, carbon and air quality.  

A wide range of topics will include habitat creation and enhancement, uplands grazing management, field boundary renovation and maintenance, farm birds, wildlife and pollinators, nutrient management planning to increase efficiency, ammonia mitigation strategies, soil health and maximising carbon sequestration. Agri–environment schemes and their compliance will also be covered.

Activities in an Environmental Farming BDG will include on–farm meetings, projects and demonstrations and will provide an opportunity for you to meet with like–minded farmers interested in farming and conservation in your locality.  A dedicated CAFRE agri–environment adviser will be available to assist participants and help guide the group discussion.
