An agreement between Lithuania and EC on direct payments to farmers


Giedrius Surplys, Agriculture Minister of Lithuania told that new deal with the European Commission on new direct payments to farmers is going to be reached in late 2020.

The Baltic countries will demand that direct payments to their farmers be increased to 100 percent of the EU average in seven years’ time.

The Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian agriculture ministers agreed on this at an informal meeting in Vilnius in late May.

Direct payments averaged 166 euros per hectare in Lithuania last year, compared with the EU average of 266 euros.

Back in 2013, EU leaders agreed that direct payments in Lithuania would reach at least 196 euros per hectare in late 2019. Under the current European Commission proposal, Lithuanian farmers will be paid 80 percent of the EU average in 2027.
