Must apply online in BPS this year
The online application system for applications for the 2018 Basic Payment and Greening Schemes opened yesterday. Farmers will shortly receive a BPS information pack containing terms and conditions and land details.
EU regulations stipulate that all applications must be submitted online this year; hence this week’s early opening of the online facility, a month earlier than in 2017, to provide more time for farmers to familiarise themselves with the online application process.
The closing date for BPS applications is Tuesday, May 15.
