Land parcel register

The term “land parcel register” refers to the location database belonging to the agricultural administration’s Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS). The register contains location and identification information of all farm economy centres and basic parcels that have applied support based on land area, such as basic parcel ID, land area, perimeter and type of borderline. The land parcel register is used in agricultural support administration, monitoring, planning and reporting.

The land parcel register is a functional sub-register of the rural business register which is based on EU regulations of the land parcel system to be included in the IACS.
