England: Defra unveils plans to move CAP money 'uphill'

See the article in today's Farmers Guardian.

Look for the comments about:

  • The retention of the three-region system: 
    • Lowland areas (i.e. land outside severely disadvantaged areas) 
    • Severely disadvantaged areas, and
    • Moorland
  • The shift of funding away from the lowland areas into the other uphill areas; and
  • The increase in the minimum claim size to 5 ha.
It would be boring if it was simple!
