Good agricultural and environmental condition (GAEC)

Farmers are obliged to maintain their land in ʽgood agricultural and environmental conditionʼ. This concept includes the following: the protection of soil against erosion, the maintenance of soil organic matter and soil structure, and the safe-guarding of landscape features. It is the member states - not the European Union - which decide the exact specification of these parameters.
