Farmers looking to apply for a 2017 Nitrates Derogation have been granted an extension.
The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine announced this week an extension to the closing date for submission of 2017 Nitrates Derogation applications.
The decision to extend the closing date to Thursday, April 12, 2017 was taken in light of the significant interest in new Derogation applications.
Nitrates Derogation applications can only be submitted online using the Department’s on-line facilities.
Farmers not already registered for agfood.ie can do so by logging onto www.agfood.ie and clicking the 'Register' button.
Documentation is available on the Department’s website here.
