Rates and payments

Pound sign

Payments are area based, and the rates vary according to the type of land you have. This is because payment is based on income forgone (which is effectively the additional cost of farming to organic standards), which is higher on improved and cropped land than on rough grazing, for example.

Payments are also higher for land in conversion compared to that which is already fully certified, reflecting the costs that are often incurred during the transition from conventional to organic systems.

The scheme also includes a contribution to the costs of organic certification, limited to £500/year.
