Preparing the Evidence Base for Post-Brexit agriculture in Scotland - Case studies on alternative payments

Using case studies, this study makes a comparison of current agricultural support with alternative proposals for rewarding farmers for the delivery of environmental public goods. It was undertaken to explore how the resources currently spent on CAP basic and coupled payments, as well as agri-environment, could be redirected to improve delivery of environmental outcomes. The projections are based on a number of assumptions and are therefore considered for illustrative purposes only.
