Nutrient Management Investment Scheme

The Nutrient Management Investment Scheme is a capital grant scheme to support investments which enhance on-farm nutrient management to include;-

  • Slurry Storage
  • Covered Manure Storage
  • Silage Clamps
  • Dirty Water Tanks
  • Roofing for yards/slurry stores
  • Slurry Spreading Equipment

The Expression of Interest (EoI) window opened on 04 July 2022 and will run until 12 August 2022. If selected, you must be able to complete and claim all Capital Works items by 31 March 2025. The minimum grant award of 40% (against actual invoiced costs)  is £12,000 (£30,000 spend) and the maximum is £50,000 (£125,000 spend).

You are advised to realistically estimate the cost for each investment submitted on your EoI as, if selected, any grant award will not be higher than that on your EoI, and a EoI total grant value over the maximum will be capped to £50,000.

You will know by the end of August 2022 if your EoI is successful – if you accept, you will then have 12 weeks to submit your full application and supporting documents via your RPW a/c.
