This article reports on the new arable options available under the Countryside Stewardship Scheme that could increase bolster wildlife and farm profits in England. The options available under the scheme convinced the Yorkshire-based Bishop Burton College to sign it. Variety of options will increase income. In addition to improving the amenity value of the land, the extra money offers a stable income, which will ease cash flow, independent of the weather and market values. Adjusting on-farm pesticide policies to minimize their impact on water quality and the environment is a key goal of the Voluntary Initiative, the package of measures agreed between industry and government as an alternative to the pesticide tax.
