DAERA pays out 85million in Direct Payments
The Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) has announced that full or balance Direct Payments were issued to 97% of farm businesses on day one of the December 2018 payment window.
This is the highest performance across all regions of the United Kingdom, with payments totalling £85 million issuing on December 1st.

It is expected that payments will begin to reach farmers bank accounts from Thursday 6 December, with payments continuing on a daily basis throughout December. Meanwhile, the European Commission has confirmed that it will reimburse the 444m to European farmers, originally deducted from direct payments for 2018 under the common agricultural policy (CAP) to create this years so-called agricultural crisis reserve.
