ICSA president Patrick Kent has commented on the level of LPIS appeals submitted to the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine by farmers unhappy with penalties imposed on them.

“The news that 10,173 farmers have appealed Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS) review penalties illustrates the huge sense of injustice felt by farmers,” said Mr. Kent. “Such a high level of appeals suggests that there is something inherently unfair in this process.”

The figure of 10,173 was given by Minister Coveney in response to a parliamentary question on Tuesday, June 24th.

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.
