ACCESS TO INFORMATION AND DIFFICULTIES IN APPLYING FOR DIRECT PAYMENTS
Languages of publication
The paper presents the results of research carried out with the help of questionnaires and concerning difficulties in applying for direct payments and access to information about this form of assistance. The research covered a group of farms that receive direct payments and also use EU investment support. The conducted analyzes have proved that the process of applying for direct payments is being assessed by the majority of farmers as relatively simple and that access to the necessary information is considered to be relatively easy. It has been established that differences in the respondents' opinions can be attributed chiefly to disparities in both the level of education and the production potentials. Activities connected with the process of applying for direct payments have been assessed as minimally troublesome by farmers having higher education and operating relatively large farms characterized by a high value of sales. The same group of respondents also expressed the most favorable opinions about the availability of information on the individual aspects of the functioning of the system of direct assistance.
