Young farmers and ranchers will be able to do training stays on farms

The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food has opened the application submission period for the CULTIVA 2023 program, which will last until November 24. This program, aimed at young farmers and ranchers, consists of short training stays on model farms spread throughout the national territory.

Participants in this training experience will be able to select the farm where they wish to carry out their stays in the catalog published on the ministry’s website. A search engine will also be available where they will be available by territory, dates and agricultural production. The stays will take place starting in January 2024.



In this edition, the possibility of participating has been expanded to agricultural professionals under 41 years of age, or those who have settled in the last five years with an age less than or equal to 40 years. The possibility of choosing farms with the same or different productions as those of the applicants is also opened, regardless of the sector and territory.

Compensation for expenses

Accommodation, subsistence and transportation expenses for young people are covered by the CULTIVA program. In addition, they will have compensation for replacement costs to hire a person to care for and manage their operation during this period.

The stays offered are organized by the collaborating entities of the program: Young Farmers Agrarian Association (ASAJA), Association of Celtic Pig Breeders (ASOPORCEL), Agri-Food Cooperatives of Spain, Coordinator of Farmers and Livestock Organizations (COAG), San Isidro Micas , Union of Agrarian Family Schools (UNEFA), Union of Small Farmers and Ranchers (UPA), and Union of Farmers and Ranchers Unions.
