Kleve/Kamp-Lintfort, April 17, 2015: Reforms in agricultural policy can have a significant impact on the daily practices of the agricultural industry. What options are available to agricultural enterprises regarding the implementation of ecological priority areas? What are the associated funding opportunities? What are the legal obligations associated with new ‘greening’ requirements? And how can agricultural reform be used to halt the loss of ecosytem diversity?

The first talk in Rhine-Waal’s Studium Generale lecture series for summer semester 2015 will look at these interesting questions and more. In addition to agricultural reform and its effects on the agricultural sector, Ms. Verhaag will provide the audience in Kamp-Lintfort with a short overview of ongoing government projects relating to biodiversity and agriculture in North Rhine-Westphalia.
