Farmers are being reminded by the FUW to cross-check Glastir contract extension offers to avoid financial penalties.
One-year Glastir extensions are currently being offered by the Welsh Government, via rPW Online only, to many whose Glastir contracts conclude at the end of 2018.
“It is important that farmers access their rPW Online
account and read their contract extension offer so they fully understand any new obligations or changes to their contracts, as even a minor breach can result in significant penalties,” said FUW policy officer, Charlotte Priddy (pictured above).
“If they are happy with the offer it is also essential that they accept it within the 21 day deadline.”
FUW members who are unsure of their contractual obligations should contact their local FUW county office for further advice or the rural Payments Wales Customer Contact centre on 0300 062 5004.
