This section provides information and guidance for the Environmental Farming Scheme.

Failure to complete training will delay your EFS payment and could result in scheme cancellation.

Please complete your on-line training through the CAFRE website at CAFRE online (moodle). Remember your log-in is your Business ID and your password is ‘Password’ followed by the last 3 digits of your postcode.

Your EFS payment will not be released until your online training is fully complete. Businesses which have not completed their training by 31 December will have their agreement cancelled.

For further help see  ‘help to carry out your on-line training’.  If you need additional help, please contact your local DAERA office or telephone 0300 200 7878.

Make sure your Single Application claim for payment is accurate. 

Check over the details of your agreement to make sure you have completed all the works you’ve agreed to do by the specified deadlines. 

Amend your claim as soon as possible after the option completion deadline if you have not completed all the works for which you claimed. Use the EFS SAF3 Amendment Form to do this
