Despite promises from the previous administration that the AEOS scheme would open in mid-March, Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney confirmed there was no start date yet.
With up to 15,000 applicants expected to apply for the 10,000-capacity scheme, competition for places will be fierce. "There will be more emphasis on climate change and water quality this time," said the IFA's Tom Turley.
