Are there areas of your land that are less productive and hard to improve?  Have you noticed wildlife in these areas?  Is your existing environmental management contract almost at an end? If so, the Agri-Environment Climate Scheme (AECS) could help you make the most of these areas




The AECS scheme provides funding to enhance the biodiversity of Scotland’s farming landscape over 5 years.  This income is one you should consider exploring!  Some of the options available are:

·         Creation of Species-rich Grassland - £284.80 per hectare per year

·         Creation of Wetland - £284.40 per hectare per year

·         Water Margins in Grassland fields - £123.42 per hectare per year

·         Habitat Mosaic Management  - £104.63 per hectare per year

·         Wild Bird Seed for Farmland Birds - £322.63 per hectare per year

 This is just a small sample of the potential options that may be available to you, in addition to the capital funding available to help get your scheme started.


We can carry out your farm environment assessment and, if necessary, a diffuse pollution assessment prior to proceeding with any application.  If you would like to discuss the scheme, please call 01461600540 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
