ABSTRACT
The article reports on the agreement established between the European Union (EU) farm ministers on new rules for voluntary modulation. According to the author, the decision means that the British government is now able to press ahead with deciding the rates of voluntary modulation to apply to farmers' single farm payments in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The agreement also means that 20 percent of the total EU rural development budget for 2007 can now be released.
