Article 39

(ex Article 33 TEC)

1.   The objectives of the common agricultural policy shall be:

(a)

to increase agricultural productivity by promoting technical progress and by ensuring the rational development of agricultural production and the optimum utilisation of the factors of production, in particular labour;

(b)

thus to ensure a fair standard of living for the agricultural community, in particular by increasing the individual earnings of persons engaged in agriculture;

(c)

to stabilise markets;

(d)

to assure the availability of supplies;

(e)

to ensure that supplies reach consumers at reasonable prices.

2.   In working out the common agricultural policy and the special methods for its application, account shall be taken of:

(a)

the particular nature of agricultural activity, which results from the social structure of agriculture and from structural and natural disparities between the various agricultural regions;

(b)

the need to effect the appropriate adjustments by degrees;

(c)

the fact that in the Member States agriculture constitutes a sector closely linked with the economy as a whole.
