McMullan welcomes launch of new DARD website
Sinn Féin MLA Oliver McMullan has welcomed the launch of a new mobile and tablet friendly Department of Agriculture website. Mr McMullan said; "The modern farm has changed dramatically and I welcome the fact that Agriculture Minister Michelle O'Neill has launched a new DARD website to meet the needs of a changing world. "It is particularly important that the new website is designed for mobile and tablets so it can be accessed by farmers and those involved in agriculture while on the move. "This offers round the clock access to departmental services so that farmers will be able to manage their administration when it suits them.
"The launch of this new website is the latest in a series of initiatives by Minister O'Neil to help local farmers and follows on from the successful online application process for Single Farm Payments which saw a record equalling number of payments being made this year. "I will continue to work with the Minister to ensure that adequate broadband services are available in rural areas to ensure our agriculture industry can continue to develop and grow."
