Farm fund dead­line ex­tended

Bray People - - NEWS -

THE dead­line for sub­mis­sion of data for Farm Im­prove­ment Plans in Knowl­edge Trans­fer Groups will be ex­tended un­til Au­gust 21, 2017.

Min­is­ter of State at the Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture An­drew Doyle con­firmed the ex­ten­sion of time this week and said it will cer­tainly ben­e­fit Wick­low farm­ers who are ap­ply­ing to this €100m fund.

‘ This will give Wick­low farm­ers more time to get their in­for­ma­tion in or­der. No doubt farm ad­vi­sors and plan­ners will wel­come this ex­ten­sion of the dead­line to com­plete their work. The new dead­line will also al­low vets to fi­nalise An­i­mal Health Mea­sures for farmer par­tic­i­pants,’ he said.

Min­is­ter Doyle re­minded Wick­low farm­ers that the July 31 dead­line for hold­ing meet­ings of KT Groups re­mains in place.
