IFA Rural Development Chairman Michael Biggins has welcomed the roll-out of GLAS payments to 34,000 participants under the scheme.

 

He said it’s important that the remaining 13,000 participants are also paid without delay.

Advance payments for GLAS began last week. They represent 85% of the full year payment for 2021.

“This 85% advance payment, worth €118m, is vital for farmers who have made commitments to pay bills at this time of the year,” he said.
