As part of Scotland government’s drive to put the rural economy at the centre of the post-COVID recovery programme, a new £10 million fund has been set up in order to help farmers buy new equipment.

Known as the ‘Sustainable Agriculture Capital Grant Scheme’ (SACGS), it will run for five weeks, offering grants of up to £20,000 for farmers and crofters to purchase new equipment.

The designated fund will open for applications later this month, the government said.
