MEPs back farm policy reforms

The European Parliament agreed on Wednesday to a “fairer and greener” reform of the EU’s agriculture policy but MEPs from across the political spectrum weighed in with their discontent.

MEPs insisted that EU funds go only to active farmers and not to landowners who do not farm their land. Also, it was decided that more environmentally-friendly farming practices will be used. This is the first reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) shaped by Parliament as a full co-legislator with EU member states.
