Growing for the Environment is a grant scheme available to all eligible farmers in Wales. The scheme supports the growing and utilisation of crops, which can result in improvements in the environmental performance of a farm business.

The scheme objectives are to support farmers to:

  • reduce carbon and greenhouse gas emissions.
  • adapt to climate change and build greater resilience into farm businesses.
  • improve water quality and reduce flood risks.
  • contribute towards a reversal in the decline of Wales’ native biodiversity.

Crops and activity supported through the Growing for the Environment scheme have been pre-identified as offering clear and quantifiable benefits to the environment and farm business.

Please read the Growing for the Environment rules and guidance document before submitting an Expression of Interest (EoI).

Any changes will be publicised via the Welsh Government website, GWLAD online and, where necessary, we will contact you directly.
