TF8142 : Environmental Stewardship Scheme

taken 11 years ago, near to Burnham Norton, Norfolk, Great Britain

Environmental Stewardship Scheme
Environmental Stewardship Scheme
Field margin near Hunter's Hill Farm clearly showing the strips of different planting between hedgerow and crop. The grey sign says 'Environmental Stewardship Scheme - please keep off all field margins'.

I don't pretend to understand the in and outs but this is the relevant DEFRA site LinkExternal link. Talking to a nearby farmer (Alister Borthwick at TF8043 ) he finds the schemes overly prescriptive so that when things go wrong, due for instance to this year's spring drought, he cannot correct the situation without breaking the rules. One size must fit all.
