Breaking down access to new markets to cultivate business resilience

Public and private nature markets – A view from the top 

With BPS continuing to phase out, there are increasing opportunities for farmers to access new income to cultivate business resilience. Following Defra’s release of its latest Nature Markets Framework, designed to scale up some of these existing markets, this session will focus on helping farmers break down some of the economic and environmental benefits on offer, as well as answering fundamental questions around publicly-funded environmental incentives, such as SFI, CS Plus and ELMS.   

Can nature provide an income? Farmer focused case study  

This session will provide farmers with a unique insight into the economic opportunities and challenges of nature farming in practice to ask: can nature provide an income?  

Novel crops and new markets: Assessing the impact for farmers and resilience 

Opportunities are now opening to explore alternative cropping rotations. This session will combine technical expertise and practice to explore how diversifying your crop rotation through accessing novel crops and new markets could be key to boosting farm profitability and resilience.
