The balancing payment represents the final 15% of the 2016 payment and completes the total payment for GLAS actions undertaken last year for 15,000 farmers.

Today’s payment of just under €10m brings to over €138m the total payments made to date in respect of GLAS 2016.

Commenting on the payments the Minister said “I am delighted to be commencing these GLAS balancing payments on schedule to almost 15,000 farmers today. This closes out the payment for actions last year to these participants.

“Our priority now is to continue to make payments to other eligible applicants and we will continue to make weekly payments to other eligible participants."
