A free web-based support tool will enable farmers to deliver environmental improvements and potentially attract payments for providing ‘public money for public goods’ under the new agri-environment scheme.

The new Environmental Planner tool (E-Planner) has been produced by the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (UKCEH) to help farmers make decisions on which agri-environment options to introduce and where these are likely to work best. It uses detailed environmental data at a resolution of just five meters on all two million-plus fields across Great Britain.
