The state secretary reminded that the support structure of the Common Agricultural Policy, valid from 2015 and of particular importance for Hungary, is the system of subsidies linked to production. At the end of 2022, 4.5 billion forints have already been paid in the form of an advance for the sheep industry, and in the next few days, more than 7,000 livestock keepers will receive almost 5.5 billion forints in support.

It is important to know the rules

The Ministry of Agriculture once again draws the attention of those concerned to the fact that the joint publication of the Ministry and the Chamber of Agriculture summarizes the complex rules of subsidies linked to production under the title “Subsidies linked to production”, which, in addition to general information, also lists subsidies linked to the production of crops and animal husbandry. The publication is available on the thematic KAP website at In addition, farmers should do everything possible to ensure that the data in the Unified Registration and Identification System is up-to-date, due to the personification of the animals appearing in this year’s unified application.
