FADN survey results 2017 = Ūkių veiklos rezultatai (ŪADT tyrimo duomenys) 2017


Statistical publications “FADN survey results” are annually published since 1996. The publication of 2017 is based on accountancy data from 1300 family farms and 35 agricultural companies (AC). Selected farms cover all districts, natural zones and reflect different farming conditions. After the EU accession in 2004 Lithuania usually delivers data of 1000–1150 farms to the EU Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN). Lithuanian economic size threshold for FADN survey is 4 thousand Euros.

Typology of the FADN sample was calculated based on SO 2013 coefficients (Table 3), weighting of results was done with regard to FSS 2016.

Like in previous years, statistical results of family farms and agricultural companies are presented separately, as they are very different from both economic size and labour input. Some types of farming and economic size classes are aggregated. Weighted averages per farm are calculated for each group and whole country. Data of the previous year per country in family farms is also presented, what enables to compare farming results in the course of the last two years. Structures of the sample farms (family farms and agricultural companies) are revealed in the tables 4 and 5 respectively.

In family farms average arable land area was similar to 2016. Year 2017 was much more favorable for crop production than 2016. Yields of most cereals were higher, wheat (they compose the main part of arable land) yield was higher by 13.6 per cent, yield of rape (also very important crop) increased even by 22.8 per cent, compared to 2016. Sale prices of most crops also increased slightly. Due to these factors output crops increased by 17.3 per cent to 21198 Euro, compared to 18077 Euro in 2016.

Situation in livestock sector was also much better than in 2016. In the course of some year average number of livestock units per farm decreased, however, in 2016–2017 it stabilized. Milk yield per cow grew by 0.9 per cent and amounted to 5283 kg per cow, compared to 2016. Still, milk yield is rather low in comparison to most EU countries. At last milk sale price grew till 27 Euro cents, compared to 20 Euro cents in 2016. Like output crops, output livestock also increased by 17.3 per cent to 8790 Euro, compared to 7507 Euro in 2016. As usual, the share of OGA in the total output was insignificant.

Total Output was higher by 17.5 per cent, compared to 2016, and amounted to 30977 Euro. Considering subsidies, though direct, redistributive, greening payments grew, total subsidies excluded on investment decreased by 6 per cent, compared to 2016. Investment subsidies also were slightly lower than in 2016.

Specific costs a little bit decreased, farming overheads – increased, what resulted in similar total costs, compared to 2016. Like in previous years, depreciation made about 27 per cent of total output, taxes paid amounted only to 0,34 per cent of all costs.

Due to significant increase of output crops and output livestock, Farm Net Income was higher by 23.1 per cent, compared to 2016. Year 2017 was the most successful year of the last five years.

Average total assets increased by 10 per cent, compared to 2016. The debts were also growing, however, Net Worth at the end of the year increased by 11.8 per cent to 99944 Euro, compared to 89388 Euro in 2016.

Only 35 Agricultural companies (AC) were included into survey 2016. It was not easy to incorporate proper AC because a part of Lithuanian AC had chosen accounting year different from calendar year (July 1st). Therefore, they could not provide farming and other data for year 2017. The results of agricultural companies are presented in two tables: standard results by type of farming and economic size based on the EU RICA1 methodology.

 This publication contains 30 tables. Family farms are grouped by:


-        economic size;

-        type of farming;

-        area;

-        land quality point;

-        farmer’s age;

-        counties;

-        less favoured (LFA) and normal areas;

-        organic farms.

Types of farming in family farms (row headings in the tables of family farms):

  1. Specialist cereals, oilseeds and protein crops (TF 15);

  2. General field cropping, mixed cropping (TF 16, 61);

  3. Horticulture and permanent crops (TF 23, 38);

  4. Specialist dairying (TF 45);

  5. Grazing livestock (TF 46, 47, 48, 73);

  6. Specialist granivores (TF 51, 52, 53);

  7. Field crops-grazing livestock, combined (TF 83);

  8. Various crops and livestock combined (TF 84).
