RDP in Veneto: almost a thousand applications submitted requesting support for organic farming (IT)


These are the figures emerging from the answers to the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 on Measure 11 - Organic Farming ", expired last 15 June. The applications received were: 690 for maintaining the organic farming (OF) method (Intervention 11.2.1), and 269 for the conversion to OF (Intervention 11.1.1). The resources allocated by the Veneto Region amount to a total of 21.8 million euro, out of which 16 million are for payments intended to maintain the OF method and 5.8 to conversion.

The two measures foresee a commitment for farmers of five years in front of the granted payments. The measure therefore has a multi-year horizon. Any expenditure remains possibly due to renouncements or reprogramming of resources may give rise to new calls in the next  years.

In Veneto there are 1,804 operators involved in the organic farming sector, most of them processing companies, the highest number at Italian level. The area cultivated with the organic method amounts (as of December 2014) to 15,205 hectares, and the main organic crops are cereals (2,863 hectares) and wine (2,405 hectares).
