Carlow Fine Gael TD, Pat Deering has today (Wednesday) welcomed the announcement by Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney to extend the closing date for AEOS applications by one week to Friday 7th December 2012.

The scheme, which is broadly similar to last year’s scheme, has annual funding of €20 million. It is open to all farmers other than those currently participating  in either AEOS 1 or 2 or those farmers who will remain in REPS 4 beyond 2012.

“This is a common sense approach by the Minister, there is a good level of interest in the scheme and it is important that farmers and planners have adequate time to submit completed applications on time. Applications should be submitted directly to Johnstown Castle, Wexford.”
