The article focuses on the advice to North-east producers applying or have applied for Higher Level Stewardship to seek guidance from the British Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) before investing in paid advice or resubmitting their application. Neil Clark, regional team leader of DEFRA, denied rumours that only specific farm types were being considered. Louis Fell of George F White suggests to wait until April 2007 before applying.
