During this study, an analysis was conducted of the distribution of direct payments from the first pillar of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) to farmers in the EU28. This distribution has been shown to be uneven: in 2015, 81% of EU farmers received 20% of the payments. Farms that receive few payments are usually smaller than those that receive higher payments. The uneven distribution of direct payments is caused by the fact that the group of farmers with small farms in the EU28 is much larger than the group with large farms.
