Head of Agriculture at Hartpury appointed IAAP

Head of Agriculture at Hartpury College, Janatha Stout, is one of the 36 new members to have been appointed to join the Independent Agricultural Appeals Panel (IAAP).

This national panel meets in order to consider appeals against decisions made by the Rural Payments Agency, who are responsible for the majority of funding paid to the farming industry in England.

The IAAP is completely independent from the Rural Payments Agency and is the last stage of the appeal which puts forward recommendations to the Farming Minister before a final decision is made. The panel comprises of members with an extensive range of skills and backgrounds, in order to best deal with each individual case. That way, those making an appeal appreciate that their voice is being heard by people with an understanding of the issues they face.  


Janatha has a strong agricultural background and worked as a lecturer at the Royal Agricultural College and a land agent for the Duchy of Cornwall before joining Hartpury College as Head of Agriculture.
