€25m ANC boost

Irish Examiner - Farming - - NEWS -

The max­i­mum Ar­eas of Nat­u­ral Con­straint (ANC) pay­ment will be €3,846 for hill ar­eas; €3,120 in more se­verely hand­i­capped ar­eas; and €2,647 in less se­verely hand­i­capped ar­eas, ac­cord­ing to IFA, when the ad­di­tional €25m for the 2018 ANC scheme will be al­lo­cated. IFA Hill Com­mit­tee Chair­man Flor McCarthy said over half of the €25m al­lo­ca­tion will go to farm­ers in hill ar­eas. How­ever, the nec­es­sary 2018 amend­ment to the Ru­ral De­vel­op­ment Pro­gramme must first be ap­proved by the EU Com­mis­sion.
