Changes to CAP Greening Guidance

The Scottish Government’s Rural Payments and Inspections Davison recently published new guidance to the CAP Greening requirements (published 18 February 2016). 

These changes include:

  1. New requirements for nitrogen fixing crops under EFA.
  2. EFA features must be mapped showing the size and location of each feature. Maps must be submitted with your 2016 SAF.
  3. New compulsory requirement to include a lime and  nitrogen fertiliser plan for permanent grassland.
  4. EFA field margins and buffer strips no longer have to be adjacent to arable land but can be within 5 metres of arable land.
