Abstract

As the Scottish Government evolve agricultural policy there has been discussions on the merits of the existing 3 region Basic Payment Scheme model compared to alternatives. Analysis of redistributive impacts of support payments for a variety of region structures are presented here, with some further variations to budgets and/or payment criteria. The options include: (1) a single flat payment rate across all hectares; (2) a single flat rate payment scaled back to ’actively farmed hectares’; (3) a single flat rate payment based on standard labour requirement; (4) a 2 region model where current R2 and R3 are merged (5) the 2 regions model with SUSS budget included.
