Farm health planning

Between 2006 and 2008, Defra spent £2.8 million pump-priming various industry-led initiatives and communications to promote proactive Farm Health Planning (FHP). 

Defra’s FHP pages show you the legacy of that funding: guidance, tools and research.  This can help those doing and promoting FHP.
