BPS 2018 greening and entitlement values set

November 14, 2018 at 12:42 PM

The Rural Payments Agency (RPA) has confirmed the entitlement values and greening rates for Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) 2018 payments.

This follows the confirmation of the BPS exchange rate for payments this year (€1 = £0.89281). Payments will start to land in bank accounts from Monday, December 3.

Under BPS, farmers need to hold an entitlement for every hectare of eligible land they are claiming on. The size of farmers’ payments will depend on how many entitlements they use, supported by eligible land and the value of those entitlements.

The greening part of payments will be calculated by taking the number of entitlements that they have used with eligible land to claim payment and multiplying it by the greening value.
