Column 1Column 2
FR1Grass (grass for grazing, hay and silage, rough grazing, grazed heather, sainfoin, clover, lucerne and forage vetches.)
OT3

Non-commercial grazed orchards, grazed woodlands or areas in agroforestry.

Grazed woodland or grazed orchards may be considered eligible if:

  • the tree density does not exceed 50 trees per hectare; and

  • agricultural activities can be carried out in a similar way compared to a situation where trees are not present i.e. the trees have no significant impact on agricultural activity.

Agroforestry (including agroforestry with more than 50 trees per hectare) is eligible in the initial stages of tree establishment if agricultural activities remain predominant and are not significantly affected by the presence of the trees.

If there are single trees, a line of trees or a small clump of trees with grazing available right up to the trees, no deduction needs to be made for the tree trunks.
