Rural Payments Agency has paid 88,842 customers some or all of their single farm payment

Latest figures released by the Rural Payments Agency show that a total of 88,842 customers have received either a full or partial single farm payment, representing 81.5% of the estimated total claimant population of 109,000.

The total value of those payments is £965.53 million, which is 62.8% of the estimated total fund of £1.54 billion.

This means that over the past seven days the RPA has managed to get out to the farming industry an additional £46m in support payments.

The agency said that over the week it had paid 2577 partial payments (including Euro payments), 2298 full payments and over 3300 top-up payments to customers who previously received a partial payment.
