Wales confirms emergency measures to support farmers during COVID-19 outbreak
Wales' Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs, Lesley Griffiths, has confirmed that the Single Application Form (SAF) deadline is now extended to 15th June 2020, giving an extra month to complete forms. She has also confirmed that the Crop Diversification requirements are being removed for BPS 2020.
To alleviate potential cash flow issues, an additional £5.5m has been allocated for the BPS and Glastir 2019 support scheme which has re-opened today for farmers who have not received their BPS and/ or Glastir 2019 payment as yet.
A Press Release is available on the Welsh Government website.
