GLAS is the agri-environment scheme under the Rural Development Programme 2014 – 2020. All farmers may apply.
Priority will be given to farmers with priority environmental assets and to farmers who undertake specific priority actions. Where one or more priority environmental assets are identified on a farm, they must be selected for specified actions before other actions are chosen. Access will be on the basis of tiers. If oversubscribed within a tier, a ranking system will apply.
