As part of the EU-funded EU4AGRI project, a Public Call to support investments in primary agricultural production has been launched.
Under this Public Call, BAM 3.5 million is available, with grant amount per application ranging from BAM 15,000 to BAM 300,000. The applicant must ensure own co-financing for any single project in the amount of a minimum of 35% of the total amount of eligible costs of the proposed investment, except for the fruit and vegetable production sector where own co-financing amounts to a minimum of 30%.
Eligible applicants for grants under this support measure are crafts/independent entrepreneurs, cooperatives and companies.
Under this Public Call, the European Union supports agricultural households that contribute to stabilising/strengthening production competitiveness and increasing the level of productivity of primary agricultural production through modernisation and the introduction of new technologies and innovations, improving product quality, hygiene and food safety, promoting good business practices and sustainable development through improvements in natural resource management, environmental protection, worker protection and food safety, and contribute to mitigating the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
All projects related exclusively to agricultural sectors are eligible for investment support in primary agricultural production, such as production of milk, meat, cultivation of cereals and oilseeds, cultivation of fruit, including viticulture and olives, cultivation of vegetables, production of planting material (fruit seedlings, vegetable seedlings and seed potatoes), egg production, fish farming, growing herbs, medicinal plants, and mushrooms, as well as honey production.
