FETF 416 Grants Availability on Drainjetters

Added 28/02/2024

Ensuring regular and proper maintenance of land drainage systems is essential in keeping the soil in good condition and maximising your profits.

Good soil increases yields and thus maximises profit. Over the years field drainage systems become inefficient due to the build up of ochre, silt and of course plant roots. Professional drain cleaners provide the very best in drain jetting under high pressure without damage to drain pipes or soil structures. SS Enginering BV cleaners are very reliable and robust using hydraulic systems to ensure efficient and safe working.

The Rural Payments Agency (RPA) has announced that it will again be awarding Farming Equipment and Technology Fund (FETF) grants this year. Available on MD50 and MD100 models of drainjetters only. 

How do you apply? 

The RPA website provides details of the FETF grants available. Applications are made online via the FETF Application Portal which will be opening "soon". It is worth noting that this year the grants are also available to contractors and they will be split into three application windows during 2024. If you are not successful on the first application then you can apply in another window. 

The awarding of grants is competitive, so applicants will not automatically receive one and early application is advised. For 2024 the eligible grant items have a scoring system, grants will be awarded to the highest scoring applicants first, more details online.
