Only one production subsidy is given per holding. A holding is an agricultural enterprise including livestock keeping. The holding includes everything operated as a unit.

Collection of data, editing and estimations

Five per cent of the applications are also selected for special control. The control shall cover all reports submitted by the applicant on physical censuses of animals and measuring of areas. A number of machine controls of the material are also carried out. Statistics Norway also runs some machine controls upon receipt of the data material.
