With the deadline for submission of the 2016 Single Application Form (SAF) of 16 May fast approaching, form fillers and agents have reminded farmers who use their services to get an appointment made as soon as possible.

In the past, the stimulus to get the form off to an agent came when it arrived in the post but, where the SAF was completed online in 2015, there will be no paper pack issued this year. Instead, it is a matter of the agent logging onto the DARD online system on behalf of their client.
