Manx farmers receive early support payment

Mon, 06 Apr 2020

Manx farmers will receive the final payment from the Isle of Man Government’s Agricultural Development Scheme (ADS) a month ahead of schedule due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Qualifying farmers receive their ADS payment in three instalments with the final balancing payment due at the end of April 2020.

The government will instead bring the final payment forward to ease the pressures farmers are facing to meet their requirements to tend to their stock whilst under COVID-19 movement restrictions.
