If you have successfully claimed a payment from the Agricultural Development Scheme, you can transfer historic entitlements and these will come into effect for the 2017 Scheme year.

The next (and final) transfer window will be from February 1 to February 17 2017.

Transfers must be notified to the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture ('DEFA') during the application window - arrangements must meet certain conditions laid down by the department. Full details for those transferring or receiving historic entitlements are detailed in paragraph 21 of the Agricultural Development Scheme, which is available in the downloadable documents section on this page. There is further information in Chapter 1 of the Farmers' Handbook.

An application form can be downloaded from this page.
