The Ministry of agrarian policy is developing a new system of subsidies for farmers
the Ministry of agrarian policy intends to introduce a new system of subsidies for farmers. This was stated by Minister of agrarian policy T. Corner. He reported that the Agency is developing a system of direct subsidies for agricultural producers, the size of which will depend on the volume of sales over the production period.
"Direct support for farmers should be dependent on the volume of sales in the previous period of production. Under the new doctrine we are offered 1 % on such support. For reference, the figure in the US today is 10 %, in EU countries – 20 %. In the hryvnia equivalent it is about 3 billion hryvnia for next year. This year we plan to allocate 450 million hryvnia, which, I hope, will be approved by the Parliament", - said the Minister.
According to T. Corner, such donations will be distributed by the farmers ' associations and not by commissions at the level of regional councils.
