FADN survey results 2010


Statistical publications “FADN survey results” are annually published since 1996. The publication of 2010 is based on accountancy data of 2010 from 1300 family farms and 48 agricultural companies. Selected farms cover all districts, natural zones and reflect different farming conditions.


After the EU accession in 2004 Lithuania usually delivers data of 1000 – 1100  farms to the EU Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN). From 2010 accountancy year the new farm typology is implemented in the EU. Due to the new agricultural policy, decoupling of some subsidies the Standard Gross Margin (SGM) coefficients became negative in several Member States. Therefore, it was decided to substitute SGM with Standard Output (SO) coefficients. The new economic size classes and types of farming were also defined (table 1 and 2). Lithuanian SO 2007 coefficients based on 2005 – 2009 data are presented in the table 3. Each member state must define an economic size threshold for including selected farms into the field of survey.Lithuania determined 4 thousand Euro threshold. Every 2 –3 year Farm Structure Survey is carried out in the EU. In 2010 Lithuanian Agricultural Census was held. The structures of family farms and agricultural companies in the field of survey are introduced in the tables 4 and 5 respectively.


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 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 6 and 7 respectively. Data of Agricultural Census 2010 served to calculate weighted averages for both types of farms. The sample almost completely covers field of survey.


Farming results in 2010 were better compared to 2009. Though, yields of most crops went down, prices for crop and livestock production significantly increased, costs slightly decreased, what resulted in better Farm Net Income by 10 and 27 per cent in family farms in agricultural companies respectively.


Ratio of Total Output and Total Inputs during 2004 – 2008 in some EU  member states is given in the table 8. This indicator is rather good in Lithuania, Poland and exceeds the EU – average. On the contrary, subsidies on production per 1 ha UAA (table 9) are considerably lower in Lithuania and other new member states except for Slovenia. As usual, in Lithuanian family farms FNI per 1 ha UAA is best in horticultural and granivore farms (figure 2).  


This publication contains 50 tables. Both family farms and agricultural companies are grouped by:

  • economic size;
  • type of farming;
  • area;
  • land quality point.

In addition family farms are grouped by:

  • 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).

Types of farming in agricultural companies (row headings in the tables of agricultural companies):

  1. crops (TF 15, 16, 61);
  2. horticulture and permanent crops (TF 23, 38);
  3. specialist granivores (TF 51, 52);
  4. specialist dairying, field crops-grazing livestock, combined (TF 45, 83).
