The Department of Agriculture decision to make interest payments to farmers under the Farm Waste Management Scheme has been welcomed by both the ICMSA and ICSA.
ICMSA deputy president John Comer described the payment as the "final piece in the Farm Waste and broader environmental jigsaw".
ICSA president Gabriel Gilmartin said the announcement that interest at a rate of 3.2pc would be paid to farmers whose grants were partially deferred was a positive one.
