The Less Favoured Area Support Scheme (LFASS) aims to:
- contribute to the maintenance of the countryside, and viable rural communities, by ensuring continued agricultural land use
- maintain and promote sustainable farming systems
It does this by compensating the farmers and crofters who farm in the most disadvantaged areas of Scotland with annual area-based payments.
For full details please see latest version of the LFASS Explanatory Notes and the additional LFASS 2011 information.
