The IFA says farmers should be exempt from the Concrete Levy,

Agflation is running at multiple times general inflation, so there is huge frustration among farmers at the imposition of the 10% concrete levy as part of Budget 2023.

IFA Rural Development Chairman Michael Biggins says this will further inflate the cost of doing business for farmers who are already dealing with a massive escalation in farm input costs,

Mr. Biggins says the Government should be supporting farmers to invest on their farms, not adding significantly to its overall cost.

He has been speaking to Midwest News.
