Deadline near for non-food SP5 update

Growers of short rotation coppice and miscanthus, or other permanent crops grown on set-aside for non-food uses, have until 16 December to amend their SP5 application forms.

These producers can take advantage of recent changes to the rules for claiming the single payment on land growing permanent crops, multi-annual crops and energy crops.

Further guidance can be found in the latest policy update or by calling 0845 603 7777.
