Description

In order to take the difficult production and living conditions in agriculture adequately into consideration, slope subsidies have been established for areas eligible for direct payments. A slopes dataset has been created for general direct payments (GeoIV 152.1; DSO Art. 43) and a dataset for vineyards on slopes for viticulture payments (GeoIV 152.2; DSO Art. 45). There are different categories of slope gradient. The slopes dataset is part of the data used to calculate the agricultural direct payments on the basis of a geographic information system (GIS). Standardised calculations have been produced for the whole of Switzerland. The production is based on the "SwissAlti3D" terrain model from swisstopo. A distinction is made between the following slope gradient categories: <18; 18-35; 35-50; >50 percent. Sloping areas less than 100 square metres in size were not taken into consideration.
