Around the World: Applications open for slurry storage funding

December 7, 2023  by National Farmers Union

The Slurry Infrastructure grant helps dairy, beef, pig farmers in England invest in future-proofed slurry infrastructure and nutrient management systems, with an aim to help reducing water and air pollution risk from slurry.

Farmers can apply for grants of £25,000 to £250,000 to replace, expand, build extra and cover slurry stores, and fund equipment such as separators, reception pits and agitators.

NFU deputy president Tom Bradshaw said he was “pleased” to see the application window open and that the programme has been expanded to cover more areas.

If oversubscribed, funding will be prioritised in areas where coordinated action is most urgently needed to reduce water and air pollution from farming. The priority areas have been significantly widened compared to round one to meet more demand.


The initial online checker will be open until 17 January 2024.
