Farmers urged to complete annual environmental land management survey

Farmers are being encouraged to take part in an online survey to highlight voluntary land management practices taking place to benefit the environment.

The annual Survey of Land Under Environmental Management is undertaken by Defra to assess the level of awareness of the Campaign for the Farmed Environment (CFE).

Headline figures from previous surveys showed 97% of farmers see protecting farm wildlife as important and demonstrated that farmers have invested an average of 400,000ha in environmental measures over a three-year period through CFE.

The deadline for completion of the survey is 31 March 2017. A link to the survey can be found here.
