ICSA suckler Dermot Kelleher chairman has welcomed the decision by the Department of Agriculture to extend the BDGP carbon navigator deadline for one month. “Both farmers and advisors have been under enormous pressure as the deadline loomed so this move will be appreciated by many”, he said.
“Farmers have invested a lot in the scheme to date so this extension was critical to ensure that as much of the available funds as possible is ultimately drawn down. The new deadline of 30 November will give everyone involved in the scheme a better opportunity, given the difficulties, to comply with all the requirements.”
