Derelict to Productive: Soil Sampling for CAGS

Taking on a new piece of ground that has been neglected for some time can often feel like an overwhelming obstacle, particularly for newer entrants with the financial costs being high and the effort required to turn the ground into more agriculturally favourable land.

By utilising grant assistance, such as Crofting Agricultural Grant Scheme for crofters and the Small Farms Grant Scheme for eligible small holders, some of the financial burden can be lifted and the prospect of improving derelict ground becoming more viable.

This video discusses the requirements for undertaking a grant application, focussed on a grassland reseed, that will help improve your croft or smallholding land.
