CEETTAR proposes the CAP to set up a new and innovative incentive in the form of a â€śsmart technologies voucherâ€ť.
The new post-2020 Common Agricultural Policy proposal grants more responsibilities to Member States for achieving the new green architecture goals. Member States should design their future national strategic plans so that EU farmers and foresters of all sizes can access the precision and low carbon emission technologies provided by rural, agricultural and forestry contractors.
with these goals, CEETTAR proposes the CAP to set up a new and innovative
incentive in the form of a â€śsmart technologies voucherâ€ť to be allocated to
farmers and forest owners and to be released by contractors.
On 1 and 2 July 2019, CEETTAR held its General Assembly hosted in Bordeaux by its French Member FNEDT. For CEETTAR Members, only a strong EU can respond to global challenges. Humankindâ€™s future ability to feed itself is in jeopardy due to intensifying pressures on natural resources, demographic situation, and the fallout from a changing climate. Major transformations in agricultural systems, rural economies and forestry work will be needed if we are to meet the multiple challenges in front of us and realize the full potential of agriculture and forestry to ensure a secure and healthy future for all Europeans.
already have strongly invested and are going to invest into digital technology,
innovation, skills and the circular economy. CEETTAR believes that the future
EU Common Agriculture Policy and other EU financial support schemes should
recognise the role of land-based contractors in the use and uptake of
innovative technologies for all land-based activities.
and forest owners and contractorsâ€™ economic relationship is ruled by principles
similar to those underpinning the sharing
economy system. By using the equipment and the skilled workforce provided by
contractors, all types of farms and forest holdings benefit from the same
quality of technology in proportion of their respective size. This allows farms
or forest units run by an ageing workforce and small holdings to compete with
bigger farms equipped with the most-advanced equipment.
CEETTAR, these future CAP objectives open a window of opportunities to support the
use of innovative technologies in all agricultural, rural and forestry
activities. Member States should design
their national strategic plans towards issuing a smart technologies voucher to
the farmer and the forest owner, to be released by the contractor. The
amount of the annual voucher would be calculated on a given percentage of the
total cost of the service representing the precision agriculture part of itâ€ť, said
Klaus Pentzlin, the re-elected President of CEETTAR.
