Farms amount of debt has grown in the 2010s
21 Mar 2017
The average debt of farms has grown from 2004 to 2015 from around EUR 39,000 to nearly EUR 75,000. In most production sectors, the amount of debt has grown faster than wealth, which is visible as a reduction in the net wealth ratio. The fall in net wealth has been faster in farms engaged in animal production than in those focusing on plant production. The year 2015 in particular was clearly weaker in animal farms than plant farms. These data derive from the 2015 statistics on the finances of agricultural and forestry enterprises published now.

Statistical releases will not be issued in English from these statistics in 2017.

Description: The statistics on the finances of agricultural and forestry enterprises replace the agricultural enterprise and income statistics produced from 1973 to 2004 as well as the agricultural income and tax statistics. The new statistics are published only on Statistics Finland’s Internet pages. The first reference year of the statistics is 2005. The statistics describe the economic activity and structure of agricultural and forestry enterprises operating in Finland. The main sources of data for the statistics are tax data on farm enterprises, the Farm Register and a direct statistical survey aimed at farms. Agriculture and forestry are examined separately. The data are classified e.g. by area, production sector and farm size category.
