Organic Farming Scheme
I am very happy to have secured almost €12m in funding for 2020 for the Organic Farming Scheme. The increase of €1m in the budget for this Scheme is evidence of this Government's ongoing commitment to further development of the organic sector in Ireland. This €12m, together with additional capital funding for the development of the sector, will enable us to continue to build successfully on the investment to date under the current RDP.
