Improving Farm Productivity Grant

What the grant can pay for

If you’re eligible, you can get a grant to pay for capital items for a project to help you to improve farm productivity through:

  • improving efficiency and effectiveness of primary agricultural or horticultural production
  • reducing your farm’s environmental impact resulting in a positive contribution to net zero and greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction
  • introducing technical innovation to optimise livestock production and field operations
  • using automation in areas where access to labour is an issue

How much money you can apply for

The maximum and minimum grant you can apply for depends on your project(s).

Farm Productivity grants

If your application is for robotic or automatic equipment, wavelength specific LED lighting and/or advanced ventilation control units, but does not include solar PV equipment, the minimum grant you can apply for is £25,000 (40% of £62,500). The maximum grant is £500,000 per applicant business.

Solar grants

If your application is for solar PV equipment only, the minimum grant you can apply for is £15,000 (25% of £60,000). The maximum grant is £100,000 per applicant business.

If you want to apply for both a Solar grant and a Farm Productivity grant, you must submit 2 separate applications. The maximum grant across all submitted applications is £500,000 in total, per applicant business.

You need to be able to pay the remaining project costs. You can use loans, overdrafts, and certain other monies. For example, money received through the Basic Payment Scheme or agri-environment schemes such as the Countryside Stewardship scheme.

You cannot use other public money, such as grant funding from local authorities, towards the project costs. You also cannot use this grant to carry out capital works which you need to do as part of other agreements.
