IFA Calls for All GLAS Farmers to Get 15% Final Payment
With the final 15% GLAS payment now due to commence IFA Rural Development Chairman Joe Brady has called on Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed to make payment worth nearly €30m 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. Joe 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.”
