DAERA Minister, Edwin Poots MLA has announced his intention to bring forward a derogation from the Crop Diversification requirements for 2020 scheme year.

The Minister said: “This winter has seen extremely high levels of rainfall particularly over the December to February period with record amounts being recorded for the month of February.

“I understand the difficulties that this has caused for arable farmers with plantings delayed or abandoned. In these circumstances, I believe that many farmers could not comply with the crop diversification requirements or could do so only with great difficulty.

Therefore I intend to introduce a derogation from all the Crop Diversification requirements for 2020 scheme year and will bring forward the necessary legislation to the Assembly in due course for approval.”
