The support is in the form of direct aid amounted to 80% of average production costs for growing a crop in the respective marketing year. These costs are calculated on the basis of technological maps information provided by the Agricultural Market Information System - AMIS LTD. Farmers who have not made insurance covering at least 50% of average annual production or production-related income can get 50% of state aid. The aid is reduced by 50% upon presentation of insurance that does not cover 50% of average annual production or production-related income.
The aid is granted to small, medium and large enterprises in the plant growing sector (farmers registered under Ordinance № 3 of 1999 to create and maintain a register of farmers) who grow crops and have written statements for completely destroyed areas. Statements are issued by expert committees at the Municipal Agriculture Offices or Regional Agriculture Directorates.
