Hungarian famers get 40% more EU subsidies in 2009

Hungarian farmers received HUF 630 billion in European Union subsidies in 2009, up around 40% from HUF 450 billion – HUF 460 billion in 2008, Agriculture Minister József Gráf said.

The EU subsidizes Hungarian farmers based on the area of land they work. Dairy farmers are also eligible for support.

About HUF 1,300 billion in EU support is available to Hungarian farmers for investments in the 2007-2013 budget period, Gráf said. About half of the support is for technical improvements. (MTI – Econews)
