Positive Participation: 7,000+ applications for NPIs.

With a week to go until the closing date for applications for Non-Productive Investments (NPI) ACRES Participants and their advisors in Breifne, Leinster and Munster South Connacht have developed approx. 7,000 applications for individual NPI actions on the Dept. of Agriculture, Food, and the Marine’s mapping system.

“We are very happy with the level of interest and expect to see thousands more applications by the closing date. NPIs are an important part of the scheme as they allow the farmers to draw down extra funds and support the delivery of improved habitats through management. ” – Fergal Monaghan.

There will be additional opportunities to apply for NPIs, but I would urge all ACRES CP participants to avail of every application window. If you have not already talked to your advisor about the potential for NPIs to improve your farm, to increase your ACRES payment and to improve habitats and water quality than please do so as soon as possible.

Remember the closing date is December 6th at 5:30 pm.
