ICSA CALLS FOR INTRODUCTION OF FODDER PRODUCTION INCENTIVE SCHEME

ICSA CALLS FOR INTRODUCTION OF FODDER PRODUCTION INCENTIVE SCHEME

ICSA president Sean McNamara has called for the introduction of a Fodder Production Incentive Measure to offset likely fodder shortages over the winter. “Grass growth is well down on where we need it to be. As a result, cattle are being fed from the first cuts of silage, eating into what should be stored for the winter. This does not bode well for the winter, and a scheme similar to the one introduced in 2018 is badly needed,” he said.

ICSA WELCOMES AGREEMENT ON FARMERS’ CHARTER OF RIGHTS

ICSA WELCOMES AGREEMENT ON FARMERS’ CHARTER OF RIGHTS

ICSA president Sean McNamara has welcomed the agreement reached on an updated Farmers’ Charter of Rights. Speaking after the meeting held in Dublin on Tuesday (July 2), Mr McNamara said, “The negotiations around the formation of this Farmers’ Charter have been lengthy and fraught at times. However, I am pleased that we have now reached an agreement that provides much-needed security for farmers regarding timelines for scheme applications, scheme payments, inspections, and appeals,” he said.

CLASSIFYING INTERIM ACRES PAYMENTS AS OVERPAYMENTS UNACCEPTABLE

CLASSIFYING INTERIM ACRES PAYMENTS AS OVERPAYMENTS UNACCEPTABLE

ICSA president Sean McNamara has said the Department of Agriculture must address the classification of ACRES interim payments as overpayments on their systems as a matter of urgency. “The system adopted by the Department to manage ACRES payments has classified interim payments as overpayments, which means payments from all other schemes have been, and still are, at risk of being seized in an attempt to claw back these alleged overpayments. This is a ludicrous situation that needs to be rectified.” he said.
