Govt extends deadline to help farmers cope with drought fallout

The Government has announced additional measures to help farmers deal with a potential fodder shortage.

There have been calls for deadlines to be extended for some farming practices due to the drought conditions.

Today the Minister for Planning and Local Government, Eoghan Murphy, has extended for two weeks the period to spread chemical fertiliser and slurry.

It is in a bid to boost grass growth and mitigate the potential for a fodder shortage in the autumn.
