EU APPROVES PLAN FOR NETHERLANDS TO BUY OUT ITS LIVESTOCK PRODUCERS
By Angela Symons, EuroNews.Green

The EU has approved plans for the Dutch government to buy out farmers.

The scheme is part of the Netherlands' plan to drastically slash nitrogen emissions, a major source of which is livestock farms.

Nearly €1.5 billion will be used to compensate farmers who voluntarily close farms located near nature reserves. Some 3,000 farms are expected to be eligible.

The Dutch ruling coalition wants to cut emissions, predominantly nitrogen oxide and ammonia, by 50 per cent nationwide by 2030.

Why does the Netherlands want to close down farms?

Despite its small size, the Netherlands is the world's second-biggest exporter of agricultural products by value behind the US.
