Co Mayo could benefit from an increase of over €70 million in single-farm payments between now and 2026, if the European Parliament passes an amendment, which was adopted recently by the AGRI committee.

The amendment, tabled by Midlands-Northwest MEP Luke Ming Flanagan, calls for 100% convergence of payments, as opposed to the 75% convergence proposed by the Commission, which means all farmers would be paid the same per hectare.

Luke Flanagan's amendment passed by 23 votes to 21 recently, and he says Mayo is the county that stands to benefit the most, if this gets through Parliament.
