The water firm is providing another chance for farmers to receive up to £5,000 of match funding to protect the environment and enhance habitats.

In addition, farmers can also apply for the Boost for Biodiversity scheme for the chance to receive a share of £200,000.

Farmers in priority catchments can choose from a specially selected pre-defined list of water quality funding options such as fencing, sprayer washdown areas and cover crops.

On top of these, there are also several biodiversity choices available, including wildflower meadow creation, margin planting and pond management.

Unlike the previous round of Severn Trent Environmental Protection Scheme (STEPS), farmers won’t need to apply for a water quality option to qualify for a biodiversity grant.
