Improving the success of agri-environment initiatives
Since 1987 voluntary schemes have existed in the UK to encourage farmers to look after the natural environment and to compensate them for economic losses arising from this wildlife-friendly farming. Such schemes aim to reduce the impact of intensive agriculture on the environment – for example by reducing fertiliser and pesticide use and promoting suitable habitats and food resources for wildlife. However, research has suggested that these agri-environment initiatives have produced variable outcomes and there is considerable scope for improvement.
