Fianna Fáil say that the €30m rural development plan is "insulting" to farmers.
The party launched their own agriculture strategy this morning at the National Ploughing Championships.
They say that keeping farms within families and avoiding farm abandonment are priorities.
Fianna Fáil Agriculture spokesman Eamon O Cuiv says that primary producers are high up their agenda.
He said: "It is a ridiculous situation that if you wind up in farming, the more you produce, the less net profit you have at the end of the year.
"In other words you get your fixed grants, your single farm payment, but for every unit that you produce, you actually make less profit.
"That is not a sustainable long-term position, and we have said that primary producers have to get a fair return."
