All farmers and landowners are able to register to use the Rural Payments service using either GOV.UK Verify or through the Rural Payments Agency helpline (0300 0200 301). As of 18 March 2015 72,070 had done so. This represents 84% of anticipated claimants. We are encouraging any farmers who have not yet registered to do so.
