The single payment scheme ends this year and will be replaced by the basic payment scheme. There will be new “greening” rules to follow and a greening payment worth about 30% of your total payment. There will be three greening rules: –
1. Crop diversification
2. Ecological focus areas
3. Permanent grassland

Examples of leguminous crops that could count towards the Ecological focus areas include field beans, lupins, peas and soya. More details will be announced by the Minister later in the summer. For more information ring us to discuss your options.
