5.3 million ha
Agricultural land
Rural areas represent 63% of the Greek territory and the agricultural land amounts to approximately 5.3 million hectares (ha).
Rural population
Rural inhabitants represent 31% of the Greek population, a share higher than the EU average.
700 000
Greek agriculture consists of about 700 000 farms, which are rather small in physical size with the average farm being 7 hectares.

Goal and strategy

The Greek CAP Plan responds to modern challenges through a balanced approach to the ambitions of the common agricultural policy for a more resilient, green, and digital agriculture, in line with the priorities of the European Green Deal. It marks the shift towards a new production model for Greek agriculture and the entire agri-food sector in Greece. The Plan focuses on improving competitiveness by promoting innovation and new technologies, fostering young entrepreneurship, and securing a fair income for farmers. Moreover, the Plan aims to reduce the environmental footprint of agriculture. The main priority remains the sustainable development of rural areas.
