“In calculating financial support for farmers under the single payment scheme in Council Regulation (EC) No 1872/2003, a farmer could qualify as a hardship case within art 40 of that Regulation if his ‘production was adversely affected’ in the reference period 2000–2002. He could establish that his production had been adversely affected by reason of agri-environmental commitments not only where he had suffered a dip or reduction in production, but also if he could show that such commitments had prevented or restricted an increase in production.”
