planet e. : Hektarweise Geld

Die europäischen Agrar-Milliarden

The EU spends more money on nothing than agriculture. Almost sixty billion euros every year. So far. But cuts are imminent. In the environmental programmes of all things. Most of the billions spent on agriculture have always been spent on direct payments to farmers. The amount depends primarily on the size of the agricultural land. Special ecological efforts are only modestly rewarded.
