The scheme will be launched in mid April. Farmers in Nitrate Vulnerable Zones will be notified when they receive their copy of the action programme guidance. Guidance on the grant scheme, application forms and ranking advice will be available to the farming community from local Scottish Executive Environment and Rural Affairs Department Area Offices. The closing date for the first tranche of applications will be 30 June 2003.

The scheme is subject to EC approval and no decisions will be made on applications until such time as approval has been obtained.
