    Against the background of a rapid biodiversity loss in agricultural landscapes, increasing attention is being paid to farming practices that enhance ecosystem services. Therefore developing a cost-efficient and effective conservation-compatible land use policy to influence private land management is the main challenge facing present European agri-environmental policy. This paper deals with the design, implementation and results of a case-study payment scheme in the county Steinburg in the northernmost federal state of Germany (Schleswig- Holstein). The payment scheme combines a payment-by-results approach and the use of conservation procurement auctions in order to improve the cost-effectiveness of conservation schemes for grassland plant biodiversity.
