Farmers eye-up Glastir crop code penalties legal challenge

AS Y Tir/Welsh Farmer goes to print around 15 per cent of farmers have yet to receive their Glastir payments – but of those who have been paid, many have been shocked to see penalties have been applied for failure to enter Glastir crop codes against parcels. The complexity of last year’s form and the fact that specific codes were not introduced for all Glastir options, coupled with other issues such as the decision not to use the same complex approach in 2016, has led many to question whether the application of such penalties was legal. All those wishing to make enquiries regarding the possibility of a joint legal challenge should contact Agri Advisor solicitors by email: advisor@agriadvisor.co.uk or by telephone: 01558 650381.
