Government to pay farmers in stewardship agreements by the end of July

Posted by Mark Carlisle on June 21st 2019 in AGRICULTURAL AND RURAL AFFAIRS .

On 19th June 2019, the government has confirmed that farmers and land managers in Environmental Stewardship (ES) and Countryside Stewardship (CS) agreements will receive full payment for the amount they were owed, by the end of July.

A significant number of ES and CS customers have not yet received payment for the work they have undertaken, which dates back to 2015.
