Farm Productivity Grant Round 2: A Gateway to Innovation
The Farm Productivity Grant Round 2, administered by the Rural Payments Agency (RPA), is a strategic initiative aimed at supporting farmers and horticulturalists in England. The grant is open to both land owning and tenant farmers, offering a funding avenue for projects that enhance productivity, improve the environment, introduce innovation, and address labour shortages through technology.
Farmers and horticulturalists in England, as well as contractors with a registered business address in England, are eligible to apply.
Contractors offering agricultural or horticultural services are eligible, excluding solar PV grant funding.
Grant-funded assets must be located in England, and the grant cannot be used to subsidise operations in Northern Ireland.
The RPA prioritises projects that align with the grant's key objectives. The more a project contributes to improving productivity, enhancing the environment, introducing innovation, or addressing labour shortages, the higher it scores in the application process.
What the Grant Can Pay For
If eligible, farmers can secure grants to finance capital items that aim to:
Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of primary agricultural or horticultural production.
Reduce the farm's environmental impact, contributing positively to net-zero goals and greenhouse gas reduction.
Introduce technical innovation to optimise livestock production and field operations.
Implement automation in areas facing labour shortages.
For projects related to robotic or automatic equipment, wavelength-specific LED lighting, and advanced ventilation control units (excluding solar PV equipment), applicants can apply for a minimum grant of £25,000 (50% of £50,000) up to a maximum of £500,000 per applicant business.
