depth information on agriculture business What kind of agriculture do we really want? How sustainable, regional, animal-friendly and expensive can it be? These and other pressing issues are part of a debate about radical agricultural reform of policy currently going on in Brussels. When negotiations on the common agricultural policy from 2020 are held in Brussels, one of the more contentious issues will be how to redistribute 60 billion Euros in EU agricultural subsidies. How will MEPs prioritize their options? Will they reach independent decisions or cave in to the big agricultural conglomerates and special interest groups? Our exclusive report uncovers their close ties with politicians in both Brussels and Berlin and shows how efforts to make farming more environmentally sustainable are being stymied.

It's really well revealing how deeply rotten and ill structured the status quo that our civilisation has worked itself into really is. It trully shows a dead end corner. DW has really great documentaries. /// Parama Af A third of the EU budget goes to agriculture. The excess food gets dumped below market value in African countries which bankrupts the farmers and creates poverty. Than Europeans complain about refugees coming to their countries???

We take our most precious resources for granted. ( the Essex of liquid fertilizer manure pollutes Germans drinking water over critical levies //// Elias Cruise If a group of small farmers join together and decide to create an organization representing the interests of small farmers that would make a difference. If the small farmers pick or select a young educated and decent honest young farmer that is a small farmer as their representative or leader that would be absolutely great and hopefully that will make a big difference for small farmers in Germany. /// Ryane Meziane True journalism! Hope to see more of real news in Youtube /// Srinivas Varanasi I like the way you researched this. I am not sure that In India people even have an understanding of how nitrates can affect people? /// Walrave I ate some German "field maize" once. Big mistake it. I felt ill for a couple days. It's ridiculous that the fields are used to grow a food grain, but since they will use it for ethanol they can drench it in herbicides and pesticides. All of which is actually subsidized! This has huge consequences on the natural world. Fields should be used for food, not fuel and they should be held to high environmental standards we are all affected by how our land is used.
