The scheme will be presented to Ministers today.

Farmers will get 400 euro for every extra hectare of grain they grow this year.

That's under a 12 million euro scheme going to cabinet this morning, due to the Ukraine war.

The Agriculture Minister says 30 per cent of the grain that's exported around the world comes from Russia or Ukraine.
