GLAS Planning

What is GLAS?

“Green, Low Carbon, Agri-environment Scheme” is the new scheme announced by Minister Coveney in July 2014 which has been designed to build on the progress made under REPS and AEOS.

The new initiative ties in with the “green vision” for Irish Agriculture going forward to meet the twin objectives of environmental sustainability and productivity as set out in Food Harvest 2020.GLAS has been designed to achieve the delivery of targeted environmental advice and best practice at farm level.

Our approved Farm Advisory Service (FAS) agricultural planners will work with clients to discuss the schemes options, prepare GLAS applications and Nutrient Management Plans. OCAE Consultants will provide specialist advice to farmers to establish the best actions for each individual farm and those which will deliver the greatest environmental dividend.
