State Fund Agriculture increases publicity in the implementation of Rural Development Programme 2014-2020

   State Fund Agriculture increases publicity for the implementation of the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020. To this end, a new platform on the internet page is being developed where the respective data will be announced. The system will ensure a greater transparency as regards the absorption of funds under the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD). The initiative is part of the approach towards more publicity and transparency in the work of the body and is also part of the priorities in the programme of the Executive Director Zhivko Zhivkov. Before the platform commences its functions, the Fund will publish monthly data for the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020.

   From the start of the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 until 30 August 2017 the SF Agriculture –Paying Agency has admitted in total 14 751 applications under all measures, for which there was an open application procedure. A total of 4 147 contracts have been concluded where the amount of the subsidy was approximately BGN 843 million (BGN 842 949 485,54).

   At present, the review and negotiation of the project proposals submitted during the second half of 2016 under sub-measure 7.2 “Investments in the creation, improvement or expansion of all types of small scale infrastructure” and sub-measure 4.1 “Investments in agricultural holdings” is still ongoing.

  As regards the applications submitted under measure 10 “Agri-environment and climate” and measure 11 “Organic farming” the mandatory administrative checks, which are related to the undertaken commitments, have not been completed yet. Since the application of the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 under both environmental measures the following number of applications have been submitted:

   • For campaign 2015 a total of 5 935 applications have been submitted, respectively 3819 under measure 10 and 2116 under measure 11;

   Under the new programme period the farmers may no longer undertake multi-year commitments under both measures 13 – “Payments to areas facing natural or other specific constraints” and measure 12 “Natura 2000 and Water Framework Directive Payments”. The subsidies shall be provided in the form of annual payments per hectare agricultural area for compensation for imposed constraints for certain agricultural activities. As of the start of the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 under measures 12 and 13 the following number of applications have been submitted:
