Austrian agriculture and cattle breeding – chances and challenges
The area-wide and small-scale farming supported by payments under the Common Agricultural Policy guarantees security of supply and food diversity in Austria. The Austrian CAP Strategic Plan (CSP) ensures the continuation of the successful path of Austrian agricultural policy with a strong agri-environmental programme, targeted support for family farms and the safeguarding of agriculture in mountain and less-favoured areas. Through investments, knowledge transfer and innovation, the CSP also contributes to improving the vitality and quality of life in rural areas.
