There's definitely specifics around what they grow, but that's never really changed except on a piecemeal basis, and that's what we're talking about now. Moving from doing X to Y. And that may have costs associated with it (Which shouldn't fall onto the farmer). Can't hit a point of telling them "We want you to move from beef to windfarm + 50% veggies. Here's the number of a good guy who can source the metal for you".I thought the subsidies were quite specific. We looked at the sustainable crop subsidies a few years ago. There were specific crops subsidised for climate change goals. Set aside is specific. I cant profess to know about all of them but any of the ones I have seen detail on over the years have been quite specific. You cant just own land and have cash shoved into your pockets, despite what people say around here.
