REGISTRO AL AULA VIRTUAL
The ecoregimes (EERR) are one of the main novelties of the new CAP 2023-2027. Acceptance of the eco-regimes (EE.RR.) is voluntary for the producer, who will decide for which plots of his farm he requests them or not, and under which practices he justifies their implementation.
Ecoregimes are direct (annual) payments made to farmers who voluntarily accept the implementation of environmental practices, and are made per hectare or, in the case of ranchers, per pasture area for the cattle.
There are 9 eco-regimes, or eco-schemes, included in the new CAP (2023-27), they are:
✔Carbon Agriculture and Agroecology: Extensive Grazing, Mowing and Biodiversity in Wet Pasture Surfaces. Extensive grazing, establishment of islands of biodiversity or sustainable harvesting.
✔Carbon Agriculture and Agroecology: Extensive grazing, mowing and biodiversity in the areas of Mediterranean Pastures
✔Carbon Agriculture and Agroecology: rotations and no-tillage on rainfed farmland.
✔Carbon Agriculture and Agroecology: rotations and no-tillage in dryland humid farmland.
