FADN survey results 2018 = Ūkių veiklos rezultatai (ŪADT tyrimo duomenys) 2018


Statistical publications “FADN survey results” are annually published since 1996. The publication of 2018 is based on accountancy data from 1300 family farms and 32 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 Euro.


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 previous years. Year 2017 was worse for crop production than 2017. Yields of most cereals were lower, wheat (they compose the main part of arable land) yield declined by 21,7 per cent and made only 4,26 t/ha, yield of rape (also very important crop) decreased even by 30,1 per cent to 2,3 t/ha, compared to 2017. Due to low production, sale prices of most crops slightly increased. As the result of these factors output crops decreased by 10,6 per cent till 18948 Euro, compared to 21198 Euro in 2017.


Situation in livestock sector was a little better than in crop sector. Average number of livestock units per farm was similar to 2017. Milk yield per cow dropped down by 1,3 per cent and amounted to 5215 kg per cow, compared to 2017. However, milk yield is rather low in comparison to most EU countries. Milk sale price were similar to 2017 (decreased by 1 Euro cent) and amounted to 26 Euro cents in 2018. Production of poultry, eggs significantly increased, pork  production – subsided. As the result, output livestock decreased only by 2 per cent to 8612 Euro, compared to 8790 Euro in 2017. As usual, the share of OGA in the total output was insignificant.


Mainly due to significant drop of crop production, Total Output declined by 8,2 per cent, compared to 2017, and amounted to 28426 Euro. Considering subsidies – direct, redistributive, greening payments grew and total subsidies excluded on investment increased by 4,4 per cent till 10002 Eur, compared to 2017. Investment subsidies were slightly lower than in 2017.


Specific costs were on similar level (costs for crops slightly decreased, for livestock – increased), compared to 2017. Farming overheads and external factors – increased due to costs on fuel and wages for paid labor. Like in previous years, depreciation made about 27 per cent of total costs, taxes paid amounted only to 0,5 per cent of all costs.


Due to significant decrease of output crops, Farm Net Income were lower by 27,1 per cent and amounted to 9791 Euro, compared to 2017. Year 2018 was not as successful as year 2017.


Average total assets decreased by 6,7 per cent, compared to 2017, Net Worth at the end of the year also decreased by 7,5 per cent to 92481 Euro, compared to 99944 Euro in 2017.


Only 32 Agricultural companies (AC) were included into survey 2017. It was not easy to incorporate proper AC because a part of Lithuanian AC had chosen accounting year different from calendar year). Therefore, they could not provide farming and other data for year 2018. 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 29 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).
