EU plans to support wheat export of landlocked states
The European Commission will propose introducing export subsidies for wheat purchased for intervention storage in the EU's landlocked countries, EU Agriculture Commissioner Mariann Fischer Boel told a news conference in Brussels on Monday. The export subsidies would be aimed at easing problems arising from the EU's bumper crop last year, and the resulting grain surplus.

"This is mainly focused on wheat...this was the only one(crop) for which we didn't give the possibility of exporting with subsidies (last year)," she said, following a regular meeting of EU agriculture ministers, Reuters reported.

Hungary, along with the Czech and Slovak Republics and Austria, have together requested assistance to deal with their surpluses, asking for export subsidies or more warehouse space.

Ferenc Nyujto, Hungary's deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Agriculture, said they told a meeting of EU agriculture ministers in Brussels on Monday that landlocked countries are at a competitive disadvantage when selling grain for intervention storage, because of higher transport costs.

Mr Nyujto added that Hungary is having trouble storing its massive grain surplus. Hungarian farmers have already submitted 4m tonnes of grain for intervention storage, and are expected to submit another 1.5m-1.8m tonnes. But Hungary currently has storage capacity for just 800,000 tonnes, not including contracts - good only until May - to store another 1.2m tonnes.

Mr Nyujto said that Hungary proposed to the meeting that preferential development loans should be offered to farmers in addition to subsidies as part of the discussion of the common regional development strategy. Hungary also proposed extending the derogation on some subsidies available for the new EU members, such as those going toward setting up producers' associations, from 2010 until 2013.
Additionally, Hungary suggested that the various schemes of farming support should be made available to medium-sized businesses as well as small businesses.
