Over 84,000 farmers in England should now have received their full single farm payment, according to latest figures from the Rural Payments Agency.

This represents 79% of the estimated 106,500 businesses that put in a claim for the 2008 scheme year.

The value of the payments made to date equates to £1.1bn which is 67.4% of the estimated total fund of £1.63bn.

The agency says that its target is to make 75% of payments, by value, by the end of January 2009 and 90% by the end of March.
