Relaxation of Winter Green Cover Ecological Focus Area (EFA) rules to increase fodder availability

From 30th September, Defra has agreed a derogation allowing farmers to relax the Winter Green Cover option within the Ecological Focus Area rules for the 2018 scheme year.  All other EFA 2018 requirements are unchanged.  This is complicated and if you think this might be relevant to you please read the detail on this link https://www.gov.uk/government/news/derogation-from-some-ecological-focus-areas.  Note that to apply for the derogation, you need to contact the RPA by 19 October 2018.
