Farm income 2011: recovery continues

In 2011, average farm income (measured by farm net value added (FNVA)) across the EU continued to recover from the low point reached in 2009. For the EU-27, it increased by 4% from 2010 to 2011, mostly due to increases in agricultural output and prices. Compared to 2009, FNVA was 34% higher in 2011. Significant differences between (groups of) Member States remain.

Farm net value added (FNVA) is equal to gross farm income minus costs of depreciation. It is used to remunerate the fixed factors of production (labour, land and capital), whether they are external or family factors. As a result, agricultural holdings can be compared regardless of the family/non-family nature of the factors of production employed.
FNVA = output + Pillar I and Pillar II payments + VAT balance -intermediate consumption -farm taxes (income taxes are not included) - depreciation.
