Calculation of results payments

All farm plots will be ranked according to field score in increasing order.

The habitat quality payment will then be calculated by multiplying area of lands by the corresponding payment rate (see figure below).

Where applicable, the additional floodplain payment is then calculated according to the rates in the payment rates table, shown below.

In order to calculate the final results-based payment, the sum of both habitat quality and floodplain payments is then adjusted according to the whole farm result achieved (see figure below).

The payment for single commonage parcels will be calculated in the same way as for individual private farms. Shareholders will be entitled to a share of the final result-based payment proportional to their shareholding in the commonage.
