The Countryside and Community Research Institute (CCRI), the Food and Environment Research Agency (Fera) and the University of Exeter were commissioned by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) in December 2010 to explicitly explore the link between arable farmers’ attitudes to environmental management, their subsequent behaviour, and the perceived and observed environmental benefits. The main aim of this research was to improve the understanding of the effectiveness of different intervention options for the delivery of environmental objectives, and identify those factors that govern success and deliver outcomes.
