Main results


Market situation, particularly in light of the Russian war against Ukraine

Ministers took stock of the market situation in member states, more particularly in light of Russia’s war against Ukraine, which is putting unprecedented pressure and uncertainty on farmers and world markets. They reiterated the impact of the war on all sectors, with producers facing significant increases in energy and fuel prices, as well as many logistical challenges. Ministers further emphasized the critical situation concerning the affordability of fertilisers, and the impact this might have on overall prospects for harvest next year, with many farmers likely to reduce their use of fertilizer. Ministers additionally exchanged views on the possibility of using the agricultural reserve for 2023, and stressed the impact of high food prices on consumers.

CAP strategic plans

Ministers exchanged views on the strategic plans included in the common agricultural policy (CAP), particularly in the context of Russia’s war in Ukraine and the challenges this is posing for the farming sector. Ministers stated their respective readiness to implement national plans comes January 2023, with the first year likely to be particularly challenging, especially in terms of setting up control systems and ensuring proper implementation.

In January we will start implementing the new common agriculture policy. Russian invasion to Ukraine had a disruptive effect on our farmers in the EU. I am glad we had a sincere discussion on the state of play and the possible need to adjust the strategic plans to reflect a new reality.
