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.
As such, farmers and winegrowers who wish to apply for subsidies for their FLIK parcels may:
Details on applying to create, update or delete a landscape feature (ESP) or a forest edge (WR) can be found in the pages on this topic.
Applications can be filed:
Applications to create, change or convert a reference parcel may only be filed as part of a declaration of agricultural land or a vineyard census.
Any farmer or winegrower who cultivates agricultural or vineyard parcels, or who intends to cultivate new parcels in Luxembourg.
To file an online application to create, activate, change or convert a FLIK reference parcel, the farmer or winegrower:
To be able to access the application to create, activate, change or convert a FLIK reference parcel through MyGuichet.lu, the business eSpace for the property holding must be certified by the Rural Economy Department (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 email@example.com.
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, activate, change or convert a FLIK reference parcel.
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) before 1 November for a subsequent declaration of agricultural land/vineyard census.
Applications to activate FLIK parcels for which no declarations have been made for the past 3 years may be filed until 22 April of the year in which the declaration of agricultural land/vineyard census is filed.
Applications to create, activate, change or convert parcels may be filed online through MyGuichet.lu.
When filling in the application form, the applicant must specify:
To apply to activate a FLIK parcel that has not been declared for 3 years, the applicant must select "Creation" as the type of application. In the online wizard, there is no application type for activation.
After selecting the application type, a map will be displayed. This map is based on data from Geoportail.lu – the National Geoportal of Luxembourg (Géoportail national officiel du Luxembourg) – and uses the same terminology and the same colours.
The map is a geolocation tool that can be used to select and draw FLIK reference parcels online directly.
3 types of FLIK reference parcels are featured:
Using this geolocation tool, the applicant must:
By default, the geolocation tool zooms in on the main address of the property holding. If the parcel in question is outside the area of the map that is displayed, the user can:
After drawing or selecting a parcel, the applicant must then, for each application, enter:
When applying to convert a parcel, the applicant must also select the parcel's new status (agricultural, vineyard or ineligible).
Once they have filled in all required information, the applicant must confirm their input.
Before submitting their applications, applicants should ensure that they have attached proof of their right to use the property (lease, proof of use, etc.) for each FLIK parcel.
To send the application to the Administration of Technical Agricultural Services (ASTA), the applicant must click "Send".
Once the application has been submitted, an automatic acknowledgement of submission email will be sent to the email address recorded in the certified business eSpace.
Several technical criteria must be satisfied before the geolocation tool can be used to apply to create, activate, change or convert a FLIK reference parcel through MyGuichet.lu:
Some form of proof of the right to use the parcel (lease, proof of use, etc.) must be attached to applications to create, activate or convert a parcel.
If the applicant owns the parcel, supporting documents are required.
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 to create, activate, change or convert a parcel can also be filed by post. In that case, the following supporting documents must be attached to each application:
The application forms can be downloaded from 'Forms / Online services '.
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.
Aerial photographs of FLIK vineyard parcels (V-FLIKs) can also be created in the 'General Public' map window.
It is no longer necessary to apply to the Rural Economy Department for additional aerial photographs.
