NFU Cymru call for more accessible support scheme

While concerns about Glastir continue, NFU Cymru are calling on a new agri-environment scheme to help farmers in all sectors.

A more accessible agri-environment scheme offering every farmer in Wales the opportunity to participate is being called for by NFU Cymru’s less favoured area board.

 

It is concerned that farmers with Glastir Entry contracts finishing at the end of 2016 will have no opportunity to extend their contract or apply for a new one given that the Welsh Government has made no commitment to open an application window.

 

“Farmers across all sectors are experiencing challenging market conditions at present,” says board chairman, John Owen.

 

“We are asking the Welsh Government to make clear its commitment to an agri- environment scheme that is accessible for every farmer in Wales to participate if they so wish.

 

“That would help farm businesses to consider the full range of options available and make focussed business planning.”
