4 Week Extension for ACRES Scoring

The Minister for Agriculture has announced a 4 week extension or advisors to complete scoring of privately owned lands in ACRES. Our experience with the use of an app for scoring fields in the Hen Harrier Project was that relatively few fields were scored in June, with an acceleration from mid July onwards. As Advisors have scored approx. 40% of the 180,000 fields in Acres the extra 4 weeks should allow them to complete the task.
