Farm leaders have welcomed new measures to support rural incomes as part of Budget 2023, but raised concerns around the ability of these measures to fully address emission mitigation requirements facing the sector.

IFA president Tim Cullinan recognised the new liming, multi-species swards schemes and the accelerated capital allowances for slurry storage, but maintained that “while these schemes are worthwhile, they fall a long way short of what will be needed to help farmers meet their climate targets.”
