Coupled Payments for Olive Groves

In addition to base payments, olive producers can receive a coupled payment of 116 euros per hectare for surfaces included in quality systems under EU Regulation no.

Herbaceous Cover and Bee Protection

The eco-scheme 2 offers 120 euros per hectare per year for herbaceous cover operations, while the eco-scheme 5 allows for 250 euros per hectare annually by including plants of apicultural interest.

Protection of Historic Olive Trees

The eco-scheme 3 aims to protect the landscape and history, providing 220 euros per hectare annually, with an additional 20% for those in Natura 2000 areas or ZVN (Vulnerable Zones to Nitrates of agricultural origin).
