At the beginning of October the Commission published figures showing the distribution of direct aid payments. This analysis showed that in the arable and livestock sectors (excluding sugar, vines, tobacco etc): 7% of beneficiaries receive 50% of payments; less than 2000 producers receive more that 300,000 euro; about 50% of beneficiaries receive less than 2000 euro; about 70% of beneficiaries receive less than 5000 euro. Overall: about 50% of beneficiaries receive less than 1,250 euro about 5% of beneficiaries receive 50% of payments. It should be noted that under the current system these payments are not paid directly to the final beneficiary but to producer associations.
