EU CAP greening measures delayed one year

Controversial “greening” measures proposed as part of plans to revise the EU Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) will not apply until the start of 2015, one year later than originally planned. The European Commission made the decision in the face of ongoing delays as it battles to get EU member states to agree over the new CAP. There are concerns that crop areas and production will be adversely affected by the measures, which would impose mandatory requirements on crop diversification and the establishment of “ecological focused areas” ( Agrow No 661, p 13). The Commission remains optimistic that a CAP reform agreement with EU Ministers and the European Parliament can be achieved by the end of June, so that the new law is in place by January 2014. But it acknowledges that it is unrealistic for national administrative procedures to be established by the same deadline.
