Leading members of Ireland's Tillage industry and some of the countries Tillage farmers have staged a sit in protest in the Department of Agriculture buildings.
The reason behind the protest was compensation figures reported for the Tillage industry amounted to a lot less than was previously hoped for.
It was thought that Tillage farmers would be entitled to up to €15,000 in compensation to help farmers cope with last years bad yields.
But now figures released showed that this ceiling will now be set at €5,000, with a limit of €200 per ha and aid for no more than 25 hectares.
We caught up with John Daly, The Galway Grain representative of the IFA, who was in attendance in said protest.
John told us the group were simply looking for a meetring with officials or indeed the minister himself, Michael Creed.
He said the group were "on the understanding that €15,000 was the maximum compensation", and said that these latest figures are "an insult to Tillage farmers".
He said many farmers had seen these payments as a "lifeline" , and is a "parachute to keep them afloat".
He did add that although prices are set to increase that many farmers will still struggle.
He said the industrya saw a 6% decline last year and is one of the lowest income sectors.
The department had declined to meet with the group, as they were also joined by Garda officials on the scene.
President of the IFA Joe Healy was also in attendance yesterday evening.
