Agricultural and vineyard parcels (FLIK parcels) form the basis for the payment of subsidies based on parcel size. To ensure that the eligibility criteria are still being met at any given point in time, the FLIK parcel identification system is continuously updated.

To file an online application to create, change or delete a landscape feature or forest edge, the farmer or winegrower:
To be able to access the application to create, change or delete a landscape feature or a forest edge through MyGuichet.lu, the business eSpace for the property holding must be certified by the Rural Economy Department (Service d’économie rurale – SER) of the Ministry of Agriculture, Viticulture and Rural Development (Ministère de l’Agriculture, de la Viticulture et du Développement rural).
The request for certification must be sent by email to the SER at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The farmer/winegrower will be sent 2 access codes by post: a holder access code and a representative access code. The holder access code must be saved in the business eSpace to be able to access the property holding's certified data.
The code can be saved by navigating to the "My business data" tab in the "Agriculture & Viticulture" section.
If the business eSpace has already been certified for other procedures in connection with farming or wine-growing, the certification will also be valid for the application to create, change or delete a landscape feature or forest edge.
Once the code is saved in the business eSpace, it will remain valid for 6 years.
The representative access code may be given to the holder's representative so that they can also gain access to the certified business eSpace.
Applications must be forwarded to the "Geographical Information System" department (Service "Système d’information géographique – SIG) of the Administration of Technical Agricultural Services (Administration des services techniques de l’agriculture – ASTA) by the end of the current year of declaration.

Once the application has been submitted through MyGuichet.lu, the Administration of Technical Agricultural Services (ASTA) will contact the applicant – or the contact person specified in the MyGuichet.lu online application – to process the application.
Applications may also be filed by post. In that case, an aerial photograph must be attached to each application. The photograph must clearly show all of the requested changes.
The application form can be downloaded from "Online services / Forms".
Applicants can create aerial photographs of their FLIK agricultural parcels directly in the "Agriculture" map window on Geoportail.lu.
A guide to looking up FLIK agricultural parcels on the geoportal is provided by ASTA.
