Direct payments to farmers selected for an inspection by the Department of Agriculture will not encounter payment delays this year.

That's according to IFA Deputy President Brian Rushe who says the Department has confirmed that they have now secured flexibility from the EU Commission to make payments on inspection cases where they are not fully complete.

He said in previous years it was most frustrating and unsatisfactory that many farmers who were selected for inspection incurred payment delays.

Mr. Rushe says with over 129,000 farmers making a Basic Payment application across all the schemes and the severe income problems from the COVID-19 crisis this year, it is absolutely essential that all farmers are paid on time.
