The whole CAP explained to farmers

At Eima International, Caa-Cia presented a brochure dedicated to the new Common Agricultural Policy 2023-2027, to be distributed to farms.

After several postponements and extensions, the new EU agricultural policy is ready to go. It will do so on 1 January 2023 with a horizon up to 2027. It is a policy that changes some of its key points and its financial envelopes, and introduces absolute innovations, such as ecoschemes. Farmers need to be properly acquainted with the new CAP and it is with this objective in mind that, in a particularly crowded workshop at Eima International, the popularisation brochure 'The new CAP 2023-2027: strategic objectives and new opportunities for the agricultural sector' was presented by Caa-Cia. "This booklet - reads the presentation, as reiterated by Graziano Scardino, president of Caa-Cia - aims to inform on the innovations of the reform, explain the National Strategic Plan in its complex details, with in-depth analysis on the first pillar and information on the second pillar and the CMOs, recalling the centrality of the farm section. This publication, which intends to guide farmers in the production and strategic choices of their farms, in relation to the new features and based on income, has the burden and the honour of interfacing them with the operators of the Caa-Cia and with the members of the Cia-Agricoltori Italiani, addressing the entire confederal system and all farmers in order to achieve a full and mature sharing". Considering that the financial envelope of the next programming period is more than EUR 18 billion for direct payments alone, and a further almost EUR 7 billion for rural development, it is understandable how appropriate it is to provide farms with the knowledge and tools to access the funds. The booklet is divided into seven chapters: CAP - Overview and Common Definitions; Direct Payments (Pillar 1); Rural Development (Pillar 2); Risk Management; Enhanced Cross-Compliance; Production Sectors - CMO; Farm Section. A final appendix is dedicated to the activation of the Regional Strategic Plan interventions by Region.

Still too many work-related accidents in the agricultural sector

Every year in Italy, 100 to 150 fatal accidents occur in the fields, in the EU 500. And the numbers are underestimated. New-generation machines can reduce them significantly, but investment in training is also needed. Ergonomic systems also prevent other health damage: 60 per cent of agricultural workers have a chronic disabling disease.
