Agri-environment schemes provide funding to farmers and land managers to farm in a way that supports biodiversity, enhances the landscape, and improves the quality of water, air and soil.

Current Agri-environment schemes

Under the Northern Ireland Rural Development Programme 2014-21 there is agri-environment scheme available. The scheme has two levels, EFS Higher and EFS Wider.

These are part-financed by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD).
