Agri Ministry prioritizing smaller farms
Through the Renewable Countryside and Renewable Agriculture program, the Ministry of Agriculture aims to develop the entire Hungarian food production by supporting value-creating, and efficiency-enhancing investments, Minister of Agriculture István Nagy said yesterday, according to magyarmezogazdasag.hu.
The minister recalled that during the creation and implementation of the program, special attention was paid to smaller farms, and opportunities for applications were opened for them.
The success of the call published in 2021, which helps the future development and modernization of the affected smaller livestock farmers, is demonstrated by the fact that 2,026 applications were submitted with a support amount of almost HUF 57 billion.
So far, support decisions have been made in 815 cases worth a total amount of HUF 24.3 bln, which may enable the implementation of an investment of about HUF 50 bln in the livestock sector, Nagy emphasized.
