The Department of Agriculture Food and the Marine have launched a Tillage Incentive Scheme. This is to encourage farmers to grow more tillage crops in 2022 to reduce our dependence on imports. The scheme has a proposed rate of €400 per hectare. To be eligible for tillage crops sown in 2022 the land must have been in grassland in 2021. Farmers wishing to apply should declare the eligible crops on their BPS application which closes on Mary 16th 2022.
