The Irish Natura & Hill Farmers Association are insisting that current Commission proposals under the CAP Reform relating to the protection of wetlands and peatlands, referred to as Carbon rich soils does not become another designation.

Gerry Loftus of the INHFA says that land designations implemented over 20 years ago remain a major issue for many farmers.

Farmers on designated land were he added “sold out despite having pristine habitats that are critically important for our flora and fauna.” For some he stated “the designations undermined their farming activity and left them vulnerable under land eligibility inspections.”
