Perhaps the most notable changes to the list of eligible expenditure in the third tranche of the Tier 1 grant scheme is the weighting given to slurry scraping systems, and the additional items classed as low-emission slurry spreading equipment (LESSE).

In the second tranche of the scheme, slurry scrapers were listed as band 2 items (34 marks), but they are now listed in the top band, attracting 46 marks.
