Glastir news, February 2010

More details on Glastir were presented to farmers at a series of open meetings throughout Wales. Information is available on the WAG website.

The SAF forms will be arriving soon and you will be invited to tick if you are interested in the All Wales Element (AWE) and separately in the Targeted Element (TE). You cannot join the Targeted Element without being in the All Wales Element. Ticking the boxes will NOT commit you to joining the scheme but will allow you to join the AWE in 2012 if after receiving further information, you decide to do so.

The move to Glastir has particular implications for organic farmers that also participated in Tir Gofal and Tir Mynydd see this paper (PDF) for further information. The matter will be discussed at the Organic Strategy Group meeting on March 4th.
