Result from agriculture varies by production sector
21 Mar 2016
There is considerable variation in the result development in agriculture when comparing farms of different production sectors. Farms, whose main production sector is animal husbandry, have increased their result clearly more than farms focusing on plant production. The result from agriculture in 2014 was, on average, EUR 18,900 per enterprise when examining farms in all production sectors. The result in agriculture is the item in farm enterprises financial statements which is transferred to the owner of the enterprise as personal earned and capital income from agriculture. These data derive from the 2014 statistics on the finances of agricultural and forestry enterprises published now.
