The Ministry of Agriculture is committed to supporting small producers, with the latest support, more than 80 billion forints have already been awarded to more than 14,000 small farmers.

We will continue the renewal of Hungarian agriculture, 5,300 billion forints will go to the Hungarian countryside in the Common Agrarian Policy Strategy Plan – stressed István Nagy.
