Round 2 opens 1st February 2023
Grants between £75,000 and £200,000 will be distributed to organisations working to reduce the UK’s reliance on soy animal feed and/or synthetic fertilisers.
Round 2 funding is for projects and activities that help to reduce the UK’s reliance on soy animal feed and/or synthetic fertilisers. Examples include, but are not limited to:
- Alternatives to soy-based animal or fish feed.
- Alternatives to synthetic fertiliser, or ideas which would reduce their negative impacts.
- On-farm trials of alternative feed or fertiliser which will measure success and impacts on measures such as yield, costs, biodiversity increases, nitrogen management, etc.
- Thinking laterally to reduce reliance rather than create alternatives such as breeding new strains of crops, better nitrate management on farm, building multi-stakeholder networks to tackle issues together, agroecological cluster demonstration projects, etc.
