The CAP health check in France: a significant redistribution of payments?

Abstract : This chapter presents an analysis of the consequences of the implementation, in France, of the Health Check of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). The simulations, conducted with the Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN), demonstrate a shift of direct payments in favour of extensive grazing farms, mainly those with a high proportion of pasture in their rotation. By contrast, crop farms and farms with intensive production of cattle are losers. The redistribution of direct payments permitted through modulation and Articles 63 and 68 of the European Council (EC) Regulation is favourable to disadvantaged areas, particularly mountainous areas. This change in the CAP is moving towards increased standardization of the amount of decoupled payments per hectare. In addition, it promotes a more focused allocation of resources for the protection of natural resources and compensation for environmental and territorial services.
