On the second day of the agricultural fair in Novi Sad, 30 producers marked their presence with the prestigious “Best from Vojvodina” sign. In addition to various topics related to agriculture, the main topic among the farming and herding communities was the announcement increase subsidy per hectare and extension of the application deadline for animal husbandry incentives.
After lengthy negotiations between representatives of various agricultural associations and the Government of Serbia, an agreement was reached, which resulted in the lifting of traffic blockades.
Farmers, who expressed their dissatisfaction for five days by blocking traffic with tractors, they accepted the offer of the Government of Serbia. Although they are not completely satisfied, the key request for an increase in subsidies per hectare has been partially fulfilled, and they will be increased by 9,000 dinars, said Dejan Trajković, representative of the association “Naše mleko”.
He emphasized that he will continue to put pressure on the government to increase the budget for agriculture in the coming year, so that domestic agriculture becomes competitive at the international level.
According to the agreement, farmers will be paid 6,000 dinars in money in the name of excise duty for 100 liters of fuel, with an additional 3,000 dinars. Total subsidies per hectare will instead of 9,000 dinars, amount to 18,000 dinars and will apply to a maximum of 20 hectares, and not to all registered areas, as they requested. – said Trajkovic.
He added that the state will buy wheat at the stock market price, while the drainage fee will be halved and completely abolished next year.

The premium for milk will be increased from 15 dinars to 19 dinars per liter, while a surcharge of 300 dinars per kilogram will be introduced for semi-hard cheeses.
