Making the announcement, the Minister said:

I am delighted to confirm that approval letters for Tranche 2 ACRES general applicants have begun to issue.

Approval letters for all valid applications will appear in farmers’ AgFood accounts, with a text alert issuing to those signed up to receive them.

Formal letters by post will follow shortly.

In addition, I can confirm that formal letters started to issue at the end of last week, by post, to participants recently approved into the ACRES Co-operation Project approach.

Minister McConalogue added:

All ACRES Tranche 2 participants will receive an approval summary within the coming weeks.  This is an important document that sets out, by parcel, the actions for which participants have received approval. In addition, all participants will receive a Farmland Plant Identification Key

This full-colour booklet will assist farmers in identifying positive and negative grass and peatland indicators, and in assessing the condition of these lands.  I have no doubt participants will find this publication useful.

The Minister reminded participants that have commonage, or have selected the Low-input Grassland or Low-input Peat Grassland actions, that they will have their lands scored by a CP Team, or their own advisor, respectively, over the coming months.
