EU hop growers will continue receiving subsidies equivalent to £290 per hectare for at least two more years under a proposal made by the European Commission. However, it is still to be approved by EU agriculture ministers and comes in the face of demands at the WTO negotiations on food and drink products that the EU slashes its agricultural subsidies.
