It shows how the Campaign for the Farmed Environment (CFE) is economically viable compared to the regulatory alternative.
The CFE was developed by the industry to fend off a compulsory requirement that would have seen all farmers and growers with cultivated land having to adopt environmental management options on up to six per cent of their land in England - in addition to any work they had already completed through agri-environment agreements.
This would have resulted in inspections, penalties and significant administrative overheads, as well as placing a financial burden on farmers and land managers.
The cost calculator shows the economic benefits to farmers and growers taking part in the campaign in comparison with the regulatory alternative.
