New KT deadline
The deadline for submission of data for Farm Improvement Plans in Knowledge Transferggroups has been extended to August 14. The July 31 deadline for holding meetings of KT Groups remains. Agriculture Minister Michael Creed said the extension arose, in particular, on foot of concerns about the amount of resources being dedicated by advisory services to assisting farmers in dealing with the weather conditions.
He urged all KT participants to submit Farm Improvement Plan data as soon as possible. Processing will begin on cases submitted by the original July 31 deadline, to minimise payment delays.
