Ecoschemes explained. Useful workshops held within the scope of the Agrotech Expo
Many farmers gathered to attend workshops on eco-schemes held within the scope of the Agrotech exhibition in Targi Kielce. – Ecoschemes are a novelty in direct payments. It is essential to know what opportunities are offered by ecoschemes in order not to lose the money that can go to the farm - emphasized Grzegorz Przysucha. Together with Karolina Szałas, the experts explained the financial support available for planters and animal breeders. – Soil tests, fertilization plan, crop diversification are important. There have also been changes in animal subsidies - emphasized the experts.
They calculated detailed subsidy per hectare for a farmer and analysed the conditions and differences between the ecoschemes. Farmers have three important calls for applications - a bonus or co-financing for the development of farms. – We are in for a new restructuring of small farms with a bonus of PLN 100,000 or PLN 120,000. A young farmer may get a bonus of PLN 200,000 and subsidies for the purchase of machinery in the amount of up to PLN 600,000 – they explained.
Farmers and company representatives who attended the presentations and saw the calculations indicated they had received factual information. – Short, to the point - now we have a complete data set – said Marcin and Stanisław.
