The RDPE Countryside Productivity Scheme provides funding for projects in England which improve productivity in the farming and forestry sectors and help create jobs and growth in the rural economy.

As Trimble authorised dealers for Northern UK, SoilEssentials can provide the precision farming hardware that can be purchased to qualify for the grant and we would be delighted to talk to you about your requirements.

Countryside Productivity Small Grant scheme

The RDPE Countryside Productivity Small Grant scheme provides funding for farmers to purchase equipment to improve the productivity of their farm. The scheme is different to other parts of the Countryside Productivity scheme as it uses an online application process and is targeted at supporting investment for specific pieces of agricultural equipment.

Who can apply

Farmers (including livestock, dairy, arable and horticultural sectors) can apply for this grant. Please read the handbook on the website through the link below to find out more. This scheme is only open to farmers based in England.

The grants are only available for a limited time and applications must be submitted by midday on 14 March 2018.
