ABSTRACT
The article reports on a suggestion made by European Union agriculture commissioner Mariann Fischer Boel in 2006 that voluntary modulation (VM) should be a temporary measure. Boel said she shared the unease of the European Parliament about a measure that could disadvantage farmers that will use VM. But she said the Parliament had to be realistic. It is noted that Boel is looking to ensure that money raised by VM should at least be spent in line with the same rules governing normal rural development funds.
