Apply now for new SPS entitlements

Growers of permanent fruit and vegetable crops, nursery crops and vines interested in registering for new single payment scheme entitlements have been reminded that they must contact the Rural Payments Agency by 31 December 2008.

New SPS entitlements will be available in the 2010 year and growers who already claim SPS for other land and wish to register for new entitlements must also inform the RPA in order to receive the appropriate forms.

Those who contacted the RPA to register their interest earlier in the year should also contact the RPA again to confirm they intend to apply for new entitlements.

Further guidance can be found in Information Note 2.
