How to prepare for your BISS application consultation

With a substantial amount of BISS applications still to be submitted, there is growing pressure on all advisors to ensure farmer consultations are efficient so that all applications can be completed on time.

John Brophy, a Teagasc Advisor in Naas, is on this week’s Tillage Edge podcast to chat through the major areas where a farmer can complete some pre-work before visiting their advisor. 

John says that, at a minimum, farmers should write down the crops sown in each field. The farmer should have decided what fields ACRES measures, such as min-till or cover crops, are being undetaken and also if straw chopping will be completed in this year. John also encourages growers to have the measurements of field sub-divisions to ensure this is reflected accurately in the online maps.
