Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fishery and Food - Royal Decree
In November 2nd, the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fishery and Food issued a regulation announcing a subsidy to help farmers implement more sustainable and competitive solutions. It is quite interesting because farmers can apply for subsidies to purchase PA related equipment but they have to provide a small project to get them describing what are they going to buy, why, how will they use it, what is the compatibility with other equipment, etc. They can also apply for software licenses. And they have to include a dissemination plan with the results obtained and a 25 h training plan they have to follow. The good thing is that the Ministry used the ISPA definition of PA and included in the decree. See article 3, section q.
Real Decreto 948/2021, de 2 de noviembre, por el que se establecen las bases reguladoras para la concesión de ayudas estatales destinadas a la ejecución de proyectos de inversión dentro del Plan de impulso de la sostenibilidad y competitividad de la agricultura y la ganadería (III) en el marco del Plan de Recuperación, Transformación y Resiliencia.
Royal Decree 948/2021, of November 2, which establishes the regulatory bases for the granting of state aid for the execution of investment projects within the Plan to promote the sustainability and competitiveness of agriculture and livestock (III) within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan.
