DEFRA has announced that farmers will benefit from new grants to adopt innovative new technology and invest in productivity-boosting equipment in the Farming Investment Fund which opened on Tuesday 16 November.
The Farming Equipment and Technology Fund will focus on smaller grants for equipment (the Farming Transformation Fund will cover more substantial technology, with the potential to transform business performance).
Eligible applicants involved in the production or processing of agricultural, horticultural or forestry products, who are based in England, can apply for a grant. Applicants are urged to make note of the differing deadlines for both strands of the fund. The deadline for the Farming Equipment and Technology Fund is the 7 January 2022 at midday.
