The German Government has decided to foster sustainable agriculture in the coming years. According to the government, next year there will be additional 75 million euros to promote relevant sustainable actions.
The Cabinet said that the country’s EU pilar two in the agriculture will be used partly to projects that promote sustainable and environmentally sound farming methods and development. This means that farmers get direct payments for the work towards sustainable agriculture, like for example in the transition to organic farming.
The Cabinet decision was made on the 4th September. There are around a million people producing goods worth 50 billion euros annually in the German agriculture sector.
