FARMS
The activities aim at supporting DG AGRI in assessing the impact of the CAP reform on (economic) sustainability at farm level, including (semi-) subsistence, in order to understand the distribution and characteristics of farming systems at regional level within New Member States, to identify the key drivers and to assess their contribution to meeting agricultural sustainability goals. The impact of the Single Farm Payment on farmers’ investment strategies, including both on- and off-farm activities, is also analysed.
