(20 February 2015) – Eurostat published today the 2014 edition of its statistical book on agriculture, forestry and fishery.
How many people work in the agricultural sector in each EU Member State? How have prices changed over recent years? Which Member State is the biggest producer of cereals, tomatoes, apples, meat or milk? How important are the forest resources in the European Union? How many tonnes of fish were caught and how large is aquaculture production?
Answers to these questions and many more can be found in the 2014 edition of the statistical book on agriculture, forestry and fishery.
This publication is divided into seven chapters, providing facts and figures about agricultural accounts and prices, agricultural products, agriculture and environment, forestry and fishery production.
As 2014 was proclaimed the International Year of Family Farming by the United Nations, the publication also provides specific focus on family farming in the EU and an analysis of changes in farm holdings over a period of five or ten years.
