IFA Deputy President Richard Kennedy said he welcomed the confirmation from the Department of Agriculture that 111,000 farmers have received their 70% advance on the Basic Payment.  €700m has been paid out this week.


“This is very important for cashflow on farms and will provide a timely boost for farmers in what has been a very difficult year.”


Richard Kennedy said it is very important to get payments to the remaining farmers as soon as possible.
