Navigating the agricultural transition: Hear from the experts

CLA roadshow has several stops across the South East

Building on the success of the Agricultural Transition Roadshows which ran in early 2022, the CLA is running a second series

We are now well into the Agricultural Transition in England, with a second round of BPS cuts last year, and further cuts due in 2023.

By 2024, BPS recipients will have lost at least half of their payments, ahead of the final year of payments in 2027.

The cuts in BPS are being redirected into new schemes, which are being rolled out on a frequent basis.

Keeping up-to-date with the changes and opportunities can be a challenge, but it is important that CLA members remain alert to what is available, so businesses can choose what is right for them.

Building on the success of the Agricultural Transition Roadshow which ran in early 2022, the CLA is now running a second series of events.

These two-hour events will include an update on the latest policy developments along with presentations from farm resilience consultants offering free support and advice to farmers and landowners.

There will also be opportunities for members to raise specific questions with CLA experts, Defra and the Rural Payments Agency in breakout sessions.
