GLAS Grey Partridge to open again in mid-October
The Department of Agriculture have confirmed that the third phase of GLAS will open in mid-October with the expectation that more than 50,000 farmers would be in the scheme from January 1st next.
This will be the last opportunity for farmers and landowners to avail of the grey partridge measure in the forthcoming GLAS Tranche 3. Farmers and landowners who adopt the grey partridge measure will be guaranteed entry into TIER 1.
This measure is straight forward to establish, fits into the existing farm management and guarantees a steady income over the duration of the GLAS.
Farmers can claim up to €7,000 per year. So it also pays very well to implement.
