The IFA has said more needs to be done by the EU and Irish Government to improve market conditions for agri-food producers.
Yesterday, the EU announced €500m would be made available to European farmers.
It follows protests in Brussels by farming associations against the prices they are receiving for their produce, especially dairy.
President of the IFA Eddie Downey said that although they welcomed the new aid, they wanted to know more about the terms and conditions of the funding.
"We want to see the fine print on this and see how it's going to work for farmers. We need to look at the whole area of how we trade our products off farms," he said, " including the legislation around retailer regulation and the inputs we put into our farms."
He referred to "monopolies" operating in the fertiliser and chemical industries which both "need to be tackled".
