Cash flow is at 'critical level' for farmers says IFA Rural Chairman
21:53 Wednesday 23rd of May 2018

With the final 15% GLAS payment now due to commence IFA Rural Development Chairman Joe Brady is calling on Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed to make payment worth nearly €30million to all 49,000 farmers in the scheme without any delay.

Farmers who have issues with Nutrient Management Plans or Commonage Plans must not be denied payment.

Mr Brady said: “Given the difficulties on many farms due the recent fodder crisis, cash flow is at critical level on many farms. Problem cases must be resolved by the Department and no farmer should be denied payment.”
