ABSTRACT
The article presents comments on the effect of a subsidy cap on young farmers in Great Britain. One reader does not want to see small farmers given advantages because it helps the supermarkets and food firms to manipulate prices. Another reader suggests that a young farmer could expand a fair way before they got capped at a subsidy of £100,000. One person stated that subsidies have been a disaster for European agriculture and the European Union.
