ESS agreement on annual crop statistics

The European Statistical System (ESS) took a new ESS Agreement on annual crop statistics. Its purpose is to update and formalise the former Gentlemen's Agreements on voluntary collection of additional crop variables and early estimates, following the changes that occurred in the Common Agricultural Policy.


The ESS agreement has been prepared in co-operation with the Task Force on Annual Crop Statistics, the Working Group on Crop Statistics and the Standing Committee on Agricultural Statistics (CPSA).
