The Rural Support Service invites farmers to apply for area payments in time

The Rural Support Service (RSS) invites farmers to apply for area payments as soon as possible, so that in cases where consultations are needed, they can be received in time. Farmers can apply for payments until May 22 of this year, with a delay reduction sanction until June 17, by filling out the geospatial application in the RSS Electronic Application System. Also this year, RSS accepts applications from small farms by phone.

In 2024, the requirements for receiving area and animal payments have not changed significantly, the number and types of support measures are also the same as they were in the previous season. Information about the changes can be read in the RSS post “Farmers can apply for area payments until May 22“.

If you have questions and need more information about applying for area payments, please call the customer service number +371 67095000 (on woekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.) or visit the Customer Service Centers in person.

The Rural Support Service continues the started approach and also organizes consultations in various places in Latvia, during which RSS employees help to fill out the geospatial application. The current consultation schedule can be viewed on the RSS website “RSS consultations on the submission of area payments“.
