Basic Payment Scheme For Irish Farmers Increased To 70%.

: 09/21/2017 - 10:28

The European Commission has agreed to increase the Basic Payment Scheme to Irish farmers from 50% to 70%

The one-off payment, amounting to €250 million, follows intense lobbying arising from recent adverse weather that has caused cash-flow difficulties for 139,000 farming families.

Details of the increased payments were made by the EU Agriculture Commissioner at the National Ploughing Championships in Tullamore this morning.
