Registered farmers are advised that the agricultural water rate became available effective May 1st, 2022.
Farmers who wish to access the new rate will be required to follow a simple process which includes:
- Filling out the forms available on the Ministry of Agriculture and Food and Nutritional Security (MAFS) website.
- Emailing the completed forms back to the MAFS for processing.
The MAFS will validate the farming activity, which may include conducting an inspection of the farm by the MAFS Officers, before the rate can be approved.
Finally, all approved forms will then be forwarded to the BWA for the rate change to be enacted.
It is important to note that NO rate change will be granted to any farmer unless the Ministry of Agriculture and Food and Nutritional Security has provided the approved form to the BWA to substantiate the change.
Persons with queries should contact the Ministry of Agriculture and Food and Nutritional Security at 535-5100 or via the MAFS website at agriculture.gov.bb/Resources/Forms/.
