Environmental Mapping

Plan, map, record.
Combine all aspects of crop production and environmental management with our interactive mapping tool.

There is now a greater requirement for farmers and land managers to demonstrate sustainability and the Agriculture Act 2020 emphasises the value of on-farm natural capital assets and the protection of our ecosystem services.

With subsidy reform introducing a 'payments by results' format for environmental stewardship, this provides new opportunities. However, planning a scheme for the first time or amending existing agri-environment projects can feel daunting. 

To help you meet this challenge, we've developed a unique tool that marries your environmental management plans with your crop production activity.

Take a whole-farm approach

Our online environment manager tool puts all the planning, mapping, record-keeping and monitoring at your fingertips. Developed with input from precision farming experts at SOYL, the tool supports farmers, land managers and gamekeepers to implement stewardship agreements, conservation projects and sporting activities, as well as record and monitor any natural capital assets on farm.

Available within Frontier's MyFarm platform, the tool combines satellite photography and an interactive map layer to bring together all of your environmental projects and crop production data. Gone are the days of mounting paperwork, hand drawn plans and laborious application submissions - you can now compile everything digitally and in once place.

1.  Update Farm Environment Records or Countryside Stewardship agreements using the same legends as RPA documents
