In case you missed it…

IEG Policy has published new CAP comparison tables outlining the most significant changes proposed by the European Commission for the 2021-27 policy alongside the current CAP for 2015-2020, topic-by-topic.

There are three easy-to-use tables in all, covering Direct Payments, Rural Development and Market Support.

Meanwhile, in the US, Washington law makers have been debating the new US Farm Bill. Late last month, a version of the bill passed through the Senate easily, but a different version only narrowly worked its way through the House, with votes split 213 to 211.

The stage is now set for what is likely to be a tense conference on the two versions of the bill.
