A Greening payment ‘for agricultural practices beneficial for the climate and environment’ will be paid on top of the Basic Payment Scheme.

It is mandatory for applicants to the Basic Payment Scheme to comply with Greening requirements, where relevant on their land.

To make sure you receive the Greening payment with your basic payment, you must comply with Greening requirements.

Many businesses already comply with Greening requirements as part of their normal agricultural practices.

However, it is important you read the full guidance to see which Greening requirements apply to you.
