Organic Farmers in Wales are able to apply for financial support from the Welsh Government in recognition of the environmental services they provide.
The Glastir Organic scheme will operate as a stand-alone, while any voluntary options can be integrated within the other Glastir schemes. It is specifically aimed at environmental goods and services which:
- Combat climate change
- Improve water management
- Maintain and enhance biodiversity.
The Glastir Organic scheme closes on 4th November 2016 and more information can be found online on the Welsh Government website.
