The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine today announced a series of in-person Farmer Clinics to assist farmers in making their applications online for the Basic Income Support for Sustainability (BISS) and other area-based schemes.

The BISS Farmer Clinics will take place from 10am-4.30pm and staff from the Department will provide one-to-one support to assist farmers to submit their scheme applications well in advance of the closing date of 15th May 2024.

These clinics have proved very popular in past years with farmers.

In total, 17 Farmer Clinics are scheduled (see full list below or at www.gov.ie/agriculture/events) and offer an opportunity for farmers to be supported by Department staff in making a range of applications related to area-based support schemes, such as BISS.

These clinics are particularly useful for farmers who do not have an FAS approved advisor to assist them with their application.
