Although the majority of farmers here will meet one of a number of exemptions from the greening requirements, some will have to undertake greening requirements such as the establishment of Ecological Focus Areas and submit this information with their Single Application Form (SAF) by 15 May 2015.
DARD is planning to hold a series of workshops in local DARD Direct offices to help small groups of farmers with Ecological Focus Area (EFA), requirements.
These workshops will cover what can be declared as an EFA and how to complete a 2015 EFA return.
Workshops will be held during office hours at various DARD locations over the next few weeks.
If you would like to attend an EFA workshop, please phone 0300 200 7848.
