Thousands of farmers in stewardship agreements will be fully paid for environmental work in July
Payments will be made in full in July to eligible farmers in agri-environment schemes who are still waiting to be paid, the government has confirmed today (19 June).
Farmers and land managers in Environmental Stewardship (ES) and Countryside Stewardship (CS) agreements do important work to protect the countryside. However, a significant number of agreement holders have not yet received full payment for work they have undertaken.
ES and CS customers with unpaid annual revenue claims, some dating back to 2015, will receive a payment for the full amount they are owed by the end of July.
