UK - Defra has announced it is extending the deadline for applications to its entry level scheme from May 31 to Jul 1. The extension is because of technical problems which have meant the Rural Development Service has been unable to generate full application packs for some farmers. Other farmes are still waiting for extra parcels of land to be put on the Rural Land Register. "We want to ensure that all farmers who wish to start their agreement in August will be able to do so: this extension should allow them to do just that," said DEFRA. Source: FWi
