This article is the starting page of the LPIS pro rata guidance. It offers two methodologies to determine the value of MEA of reference parcels holding PG with scattered ineligible features:

  • The systematic method relies on the delineation of the PGs with scattered ineligible features as a clearly defined, well specified land cover class. It implies that the land cover class borders itself can be delineated but the scattered ineligible features within can’t. A generic reduction coefficient can be determined for each such class and contribute to all reference parcels wherein that class occurs.
  • The sporadic method uses any other methodology than delineation to directly assess the proportion of grassland in the reference or agricultural parcel.
