Farmers fear heavy conservation budget cuts







A survey of farmers has revealed that almost all are convinced that cuts in wildlife-friendly farming would stop or reduce environmental work in agriculture.

The RSPB survey of British farmers has revealed that 96 per cent think environmental work on their farms would be impacted if payments for wildlife-friendly farming were slashed next week, as EU President Herman van Rompuy proposes swingeing cuts which will affect agri-environment schemes. 

Agri-environment – which funds nature conservation in our countryside – will be disproportionately hit by a cut of almost 10 per cent if Mr van Rompuy's plans are approved at an EU Budget meeting this month. This compares unfavourably to a much smaller cut to the controversial agriculture subsidy budget. This month sees the 25th anniversary of the agri-environment project in England, and the schemes have delivered fantastic results for wildlife. The RSPB survey confirmed that farmers would scale down the environmental management they undertake substantially if European funding was reduced.
