Rural: Greening Update
Fri 25 September 2020
Although the Rural Payment Agency confirmed relaxation of the Greening rules from 2021, farmers are reminded that the Greening rules still apply to the 2020 Basic Payment Scheme year until 31 December 2020.
This is particularly important where cover or catch crops were declared in order to meet these requirements. Cover crops need to be established by 1 October 2020 and retained until 15 January 2021. Catch crops need to be established by 20 August 2020 and retained until 1 October 2020.
Buffer strips should also be maintained until 31 December 2020.
