Kerry farmers are being encouraged to sign up for this year’s Organic Farming Scheme.

The scheme is an agri-environment measure under the Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development Programme.

Farmers can qualify for payments of up to €220 per hectare as they switch to organic, and up to €170 per hectare when they’ve fully switched over.

The scheme closes to applications this coming Friday, April 8th.
