The article reports on a proposed reform that would integrate fruit, vegetable and potato into the Single Payment Scheme (SPS) by the European Union (EU) Commission. Under the plan, processing aids paid to growers across Europe would be fully decoupled and integrated into the SPS. The reform also suggests that all EU land under fruit, vegetables and potatoes should be eligible for SPS. The proposals will also include orchards and permanent fruit crops into the SPS.
