The December 31 cut off is also applicable to farmers requesting a derogation following bad weather.
Welsh farmers have been reminded the deadline for Glastir capital works is fast approaching.
The December 31 cut off is also applicable to farmers requesting a derogation in light of bad weather but Farmers’ Union of Wales (FUW) policy officer Charlotte Priddy urged applicants not to hang about to prevent being caught out by reduced Government working hours.
She said: “All 2016 and 2017 Capital Works have got to be completed by the December 31, and claimed no later than February 28, via RPW online.
“In many areas of Wales there has been rain on an almost daily basis since the summer, meaning the water table is exceptionally high and surface water and waterlogged soil has made access to areas where work needed to be undertaken impossible.
“The basic message therefore is to contact the Welsh Government as soon as possible if the exceptionally wet weather since June has prevented the completion of works.”
Mrs Priddy said RPW Online was the quickest route at this time of year and FUW staff would be ‘happy to help’ any struggling members.
Derogations must be requested in writing, either through Rural Payments Wales (RPW) Online or by writing directly to RPW.
