Researchers at The James Hutton Institute in Dundee are searching for arable farmers in Aberdeenshire, Angus, Perth and Kinross, Fife, Stirlingshire and the Central Belt to take part in a study on funding programs to support on farm biodiversity.

The objective of this study is to identify what is important to farmers when deciding on funding sources to support bringing in new, more biodiversity-friendly practices.

Participation will involve an in-person questionnaire at a time and place that suits the farmer. All outputs from the study will be anonymised and participating farmers will receive a summary of the results if they wish to.

Participants are required to sign up by May 15, with farm visits, including interviews, being completed by May 24.

The survey is part of the FRAMEwork research project ( on farmland biodiversity in agriculture. FRAMEwork is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No. 862731 – FRAMEwork.
