EU direct payments for holders of agricultural holdings Allocation

Direct payments are a key element of EU agricultural support. This instrument supports the income and risk hedging of agricultural holdings in the form of a payment independent of production. It is also intended to cushion the effects of the sometimes considerable fluctuations in agricultural prices.

Holders of agricultural holdings may, provided that the conditions are met, apply for direct payments with the so-called collective application. Direct payments include the basic premium, the payment of land management methods conducive to climate and environmental protection (so-called "greening premium"), the redistributive premium, the payment for young farmers (so-called young farmers' premium) and a simplified payment for small producers.
In addition to applying for direct payments, the class application also includes the application for the allocation of payment entitlements and the application for support for agri-environmental measures.
