Basic Payment Scheme - Three Crop Rule Update

It has been confirmed that the Three Crop Rule is to be relaxed for this year due to the recent extreme weather conditions. As a result this has made it difficult to sow crops.

This is to prevent anyone who has not be able to plant spring crops over the coming weeks and months being unfairly penalised.
