Grain growers in Donegal could be facing difficult days ahead, according to the IFA.

National Grain Committee Chairman Liam Dunne says the harvest has turned into a salvage operation for many growers with later sown and later maturing crops, particularly on the heavier soils in peripheral areas due to heavy and incessant rain.
