COUNTRY INFORMATION
The tour will cover the countries’ primary agricultural producing regions.

The regions are characterised by large farms covering a significant amount of land and farms producing a variety of livestock and crops as part of a single holding.

The Czech Republic is continually looking to enhance the efficiency of its agricultural sectors and production capacity. There is a great interest in the latest technologies and farming techniques. In Slovakia, agriculture is one of the traditional sectors and Danish farming and technology is well known. There is a significant number of Danish farms in the country. However, the sector in general is still lacking new technology, smart farming solutions to raise the effectiveness of production and increase self-sufficiency in food production. 

The delegation will visit producers of cows (dairy) and pigs many of whom also have significant crop production. 

Agricultural subsidies vary in each market, but both the Czech Republic and Slovakia receive funding from the EU to green and digitalise their production from RRF and Rural development funds that are available continuously.
