English welcomes extension to closing date for submission of 2017 Nitrates Derogation Applications

Thursday, 16th March 2016

Local Minister for Housing and Urban Renewal and Fine Gael T.D. for
Meath West, Damien English, has welcomed the news that the Department
of Agriculture, Food and the Marine has this week announced an
extension to the closing date for submission of 2017 Nitrates
Derogation applications.

Minister English said: “The decision to extend the closing date to
Thursday 13th April 2017 was taken in light of the significant
interest in new Derogation applications. I welcome this extra time for
farmers in Meath West.”

Nitrates Derogation applications can only be submitted online using
the Department’s on-line facilities. Farmers not already registered
for agfood.ie can do so by logging onto www.agfood.ie and clicking the
‘Register’ button.

The Nitrates Derogation documentation is available on the Department’s
website at http://www.agriculture.gov.ie/ruralenvironment/environmentalobligations/nitrates/nitratesderogation/2017derogationforms/
