Web help for confused farmers

Thursday 22 December 2005

REVOLUTIONARY changes in the way that farm subsidies are to be paid, combined with a plethora of grants for environmental protection schemes, have left thousands of British farmers confused - and sometimes out of pocket.

Now, help is available from Britain's biggest conservationist charity, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, whose officials have designed an easy-to-read self-help guide for farmers and land owners having difficulty in navigating the red-tape created by the new single farm payment schemes and chaos at the Rural Payments Agency.

In creating the new service, the RSPB has worked with the Game Conservancy Trust and the government's Rural Development Service in recognising that the more farmers who sign up, the better it will be for both their pockets and the wildlife that lives on their land.
