The article discusses the author's experience of filling up the SP5 for single farm payment (SFP). She and her father spend half-an-hour checking off all the different field parcels to see if the pre-populated form has any fields missing. The author remarks that section E of the form is the part that makes the least sense because the British Rural Payments Agency (RPA) has randomly split up one of the entitlement blocks.
