Expenses of agricultural enterprises have grown more than income in the 2010s

Both income and expenses of agricultural enterprises have grown over the 2010s, but the growth in income has fallen behind expenses. From 2010, income has gone up by around 31 per cent, while expenses have increased by 41 per cent. In 2018, the result of agricultural enterprises from agriculture was, on average, EUR 16,353, which is around two per cent less than in 2010. These data derive from the 2018 statistics on the finances of agricultural and forestry enterprises published now.
