Single Farm Payment Scheme (SFPS)
The Single Farm Payment Scheme is the framework that acts as the primary EU agricultural subsidy available to Scottish farmers.
This is a complex framework for funding that offers different funding agreements according to the crops that are grown/livestock involved and the status of the land in question.
There are various levels of grant made, according to the amount of livestock, the types of crops that are being grown and also the amount of subsidy that has previously been received. There are no generic funding levels, funding will be assessed and awarded on an individual basis.
