The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine have announced that the application process for the 2022 Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) and the other related schemes has now opened.

Over the coming days, farmers will be receiving a BPS information pack in the post containing their maps and land details for 2022.

The pack will also include a useful help sheet. This information will assist farmers and their advisors to make their online application. The closing date for BPS applications in 2022 is Monday 16th May 2022. Farmers and advisors are urged to avail of the early opening of the application process now rather than waiting until nearer the closing date.

Farmers can apply for all elements of Direct Payments (BPS, Greening, Young Farmers Scheme, Protein Aid, National Reserve, transferring of entitlements) online. This helps to ensure that the Department can process all applications under these schemes as efficiently as possible.

Farmers are reminded to check that they have correctly applied for the Areas of Natural Constraint Scheme (ANC), if applicable. Annual payment claims for the Straw Incorporation Measure, Green Low-carbon Agri-environment Scheme (GLAS) and the Organic Farming Scheme can also be made online.
