Severe bad weather at the end of winter and in spring has, for some farms, prevented spring sowing or destroyed existing seedlings.
Exemptions may be put in place to take these exceptional circumstances into account when verifying compliance with the requirements of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) 2024.

The entire territory of the Deux-Sèvres department is concerned

Two situations can arise:

– The farmer was unable to sow the spring crop initially planned, but was or will be able to sow a summer crop. He must declare the cover installed or that which he plans to establish before July 15, 2024. A request for recognition of force majeure must only be made if the summer crop does not allow him to respect the criterion annual good agricultural and environmental conditions (GAEC) 7 (obligation of crop rotation on at least 35% of the cultivated arable land), or if the declared crop does not allow it to benefit from the eco-regime through practices, contrary to the culture initially planned.

– The operator was not able to install any cover before July 15, the plot must be declared as temporarily unexploited surface (SNE), and a request for recognition of force majeure must be made in order to maintain the eligibility of the plot with decoupled aid.

The request for recognition of force majeure, specifyingTHE small island(s)/plot(s) and the spring crop initially envisaged for which implantation was impossible to achieve, can be carried out :
