How to use TAMS to cut the cost of machinery

The Tillage TAMS scheme is designed to help tillage farmers modernise while addressing challenges like reducing pesticides & increasing farm safety. On this week’s Tillage Edge podcast, Michael Hennessy was joined by Oliver Molloy from the Department of Agriculture, to discuss applying for a grant.

Oliver explained that there are over 2,000 applicants paid out so far with a total of €19 million distributed to tillage farmers.

He said that farmers applying need to ensure the application is in the correct name (as per the BPS application) and the payment for the piece of equipment is from that farmer’s bank account.

The next tranche of the Tillage TAMS closes on November 5th this year, find more details here.
