Following a meeting with Minister Simon Coveney at today’s EU Agriculture Council meeting in Brussels, IFA National Chairman Jer Bergin said while some positive measures have been announced, further action is required to address the growing income crisis across all farming sectors, and most acute in the dairy, grain, pigmeat and livestock sectors. He stressed that the immediate suspension of import tariffs on fertiliser would reduce the price by up to 14% and save Irish and European farmers over €1bn in unnecessary input costs.
