Competitiveness

Enhancing the competitiveness of all types of agriculture and enhancing farm viability
The Priority at a glance: Various forces pose threats to farm incomes, and therefore all farmers should aim to continue to become more competitive. In some cases restructuring is needed. Given that only six per cent of farm managers are aged below 35, more young people must be encouraged to bring their energy and ideas to the farm sector.
Areas of intervention (Focus areas):
a. Facilitating restructuring of farms facing major structural challenges (notably farms with a low degree of market participation, or market-orientated farms active in particular sectors, or farms in need of agricultural diversification).
b. Facilitating a balanced age structure in the agricultural sector.
