Silage wrap prices varying by over €10/roll

An IFA-led survey has found that the average cost of silage wrap is €63/roll.

Farmers in Longford reported that they are paying €70/roll, while Cork-based farmers are being charged just under €59/roll.

IFA environment and rural affairs chairman, Paul O’Brien, has encouraged farmers to push for the keenest prices when buying farm inputs.

“Commodity prices continue to come under pressure. Therefore, it’s important that all farmers ensure they get value when buying farm inputs.”

“The results of this survey should be used by all farmers to negotiate competitive prices for their bale wrap this year. Keener pay-on-the-day terms should also be provided by suppliers”.

Survey

 The price survey took place during the week beginning Mon, April 6th and all prices exclude VAT and recycling levy.
