The person named was approved into GLAS 2 with a contract commencement date of 1 January 2016 and has received all payments due for 2016.

The participant received a zero net payment for 2017 due to penalties applied resulting from the findings of an on-farm inspection. The applicant was notified of the inspection findings on 28 August 2018.

The 2018 advance payment will issue shortly. GLAS payments continue to issue on a weekly basis.
