CAP & greening

Crop diversification

Farmers with over 30Ha. must grow 3 different crops.

Why not grow sugar beet as a main crop ?

Apart from being an excellent break crop for cereals sugar beet is the most profitable arable crop available.

Ecological focus Area

Farmers whose holding exceeds 15 ha. must ensure 5% of all arable land is allocated to EFA.  

Areas with catch crops or green cover( not for grazing  or harvesting) for purpose of nitrogen fixing can be considered.  

This is an ideal scenario for sugar beet  preceded by green cover. (Note cannot be used for Protein crops)
