The new Teagasc Level 6 Advanced Certificate in Agriculture - Ireland

A qualification in Agriculture is essential if a person wishes to avail of the many financial incentives which are available to "young trained farmers". These include:     A. Stamp Duty Relief on the purchase or transfer of land     B. Installation Aid     C. Early Retirement Scheme     D. Farm Grant Schemes     E. Dairy Partnerships Teagasc offer different courses which enable young farmers i.e. under 35 years of age, to satisfy the educational requirements for these schemes.
