Department of Agriculture officials have confirmed that a computer issue was the cause of a delay in REPS 1C forms being issued in August.

However, the officials have moved to assure farmers that it was a once-off issue and would not affect subsequent issuing of 1C forms.

September 1C forms have already been sent out to farmers, while October forms are being sent this week.

November and December 1C forms are due to be issued in the next fortnight.
