FARMERS WITH DESIGNATED LAND NEED COMPENSATION NOT MORE SCHEMES – ICSA

Nov 17, 2016 | Press Releases | 0 comments

17 NOVEMBER 2016

Following the announcement of proposed locally led schemes for farmers with Hen Harrier or Pearl Mussel designations ICSA Rural Development Seamus Sherlock has called for an upfront and immediate payment to be made to these farmers while the logistics are being put in place for future locally led schemes.

“It is all well and good talking about new schemes but these will take time and farmers have waited long enough to be compensated. ICSA will be available to assist with the implementation of new schemes but our farmers must be assisted with an immediate payment to help ease the burden that designation has imposed upon their ability to make an income from their lands.”

TILLAGE PLAN NEEDS STRONG FINANCIAL COMMITMENT

ICSA Tillage chair Gavin Carberry has said Minister McConalogue must put money on the table if the decline in the area under tillage is to be reversed. “The tillage sector is in dire need of a significant and multi-year financial boost which must be delivered if the Department are serious about meeting the target of increasing the tillage area to 400,000ha by 2030 as part of the Climate Action Plan,” he said.
