Sustainable Production Grant scheme
The Sustainable Production Grant (SPG) scheme is a capital grant support package aimed at farmers in Wales.
We have designed this scheme to help farmers improve the economic and environmental performance of their agricultural holding in line with the Welsh Government’s and agriculture industry in Wales’ vision for more sustainable, profitable and resilient farm businesses.
The SPG Scheme aims to provide capital investment in facilities and equipment that relate to:
- animal health and welfare
- crop storage
- production housing and handling
- renewable energy production
- soil and crop management.
Grants can range from a minimum of £16,000 to a maximum of £400,000 to increase on-farm investment, production, and resource efficiencies to improve technical performance.
The maximum grant rate for any individual investment project is 40% of the total investment cost, regardless of the size of the enterprise and location.
Only one grant award per enterprise will be made in the period to 31 December 2020.
The scheme is open to farmers, landowners, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and large businesses, voluntary organisations and co-operatives, involved in primary production of agricultural products.
Applications are invited from all farming sectors including Arable, Beef, Dairy, Goats, Pigs, Poultry, Sheep, Horticulture (including hydroponics and aquaponics) and Apiculture.
