Abstract

Two of the most important features of the CAP reform 2014–2020 are the redistribution system of direct payments and the establishment of a “greening” component linked to 30% of the national ceiling. Both these features may affect in a very different way similar farms located in the same area; therefore, specific tools able to estimate the effects on the individual farmers' behaviour are needed. The paper contributes to the debate on the CAP reform, assessing the farmers' behaviour in response to the greening implementation, taking into account possible sanctions in case of non-compliance with the requirements.
