SFI IGL2 - Winter Bird Food On Improved Grassland

Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) IGL2, Winter Bird Food On Improved Grassland, requires grassland to be maintained so it’s left to go to seed during the autumn and winter months, to provide food for farmland birds from September to February. IGL2 is a rotational action, and can therefore be carried out on the same area of land each year, or can be moved around the farm. Guidance for this incentive advises a high proportion (over 50% of the area) of perennial, Italian or hybrid ryegrass.
