File Note 4: High Nature Value (HNV) Farming and Crofting in Scotland

High Nature Value (HNV) farming describes agricultural systems important for the environmental benefits they provide. Such systems are normally extensive (inputs, grazing, etc. are low) and support a range of threatened species such as butterflies and birds. LINK believes it is the utmost importance that support be directed towards the HNV activities environmental benefits. Without this targeted support, HNV farming will continue to decline and Scotland will fail to meet key environmental targets.
