Conditionality Control


Conditionality is the response of the Common Agricultural Policy to society's sensitivity towards the preservation of our natural and productive resources.

Agricultural activity can impact favourably and decisively on the preservation of the habitats of our regions, their flora, fauna and characteristic landscapes. The proper use of fertilisers and plant protection products, and good agrarian practices allow quality products to be obtained, farms to make savings on their input investments, and in particular, it allows us to prevent negative consequences for society as a whole through the loss of such important and scarce resources as soil and water.

 The management of livestock in conditions of healthiness and well-being, and the traceability of both agricultural and stockbreeding products throughout the food chain constitutes a guarantee for consumers. The subsidies set out in the CAP remunerate these functions. They compensate the income of farmers and stock-breeders for practising methods of production that allow us to preserve our natural heritage and pass it on to future generations, as well as eating safe food.

In this section you will find all the information about the regulations that apply to meeting conditionality.

The legal management requirements and good agrarian and environmental practices that farmers who receive direct payments in the framework of the CAP must comply with are established in the Royal Decree 486/2009.
