In relation to Pillar II, REPS/AEOS is being replaced by an Agri-environment scheme called GLAS, details of which are attached. There will also be an on-farm investment scheme for dairies/milking parlours, slurry storage and animal housing.
It is likely that it will be Autumn 2014 before these schemes will be approved by the EU. ICMSA understands that the GLAS scheme will be available for the full 2015 year and thus full payment for 2015 but this may change.
