Organiser

Catchment Sensitive Farming

Catchment Sensitive Farming is a successful partnership between Defra, the Environment Agency and Natural England. We work together with farmers and organisations in priority areas across England to improve water and air quality. We provide free expert advice, training and grant support, helping farmers take voluntary action to improve the environment and their farm business.

Since 2006, we have worked with over 20,000 farms and helped farmers take more than 100,000 positive actions to reduce pollution. 92% of farmers we have worked with are satisfied with our one-to-one advice and by working together we have significantly reduced pollution in our rivers. In 2018, as part of Defra’s Clean Air Strategy, we are now also working with the agricultural industry to improve air quality.
