IFA Rural Development Chairman, Joe Brady has told the Department of Agriculture that farmers will not tolerate delays to their GLAS payments for 2017, and expect that the problems encountered in the 2016 payment year are not repeated.
The IFA is seeking an allocation of €100m for the TAMS scheme in the forthcoming Budget for 2018 to meet the on-farm investment plans of farmers and the commitments entered into with approvals already issued for the scheme.
