"EconomyDoctor" Internet Service provides figures for EU agriculture

21.06.2007
MTT Agrifood Research Finland has published an easy-to-use Internet service, which contains the average figures for agriculture in EU Member States. The figures are based on the EU Commission's FADN database.

The FADN database is a significant farm-level database. As an example, for accounting year 2004, it contains information from 74,000 farms across the European Union. The weighted figures of those farms represent the average figures of 4 million farm enterprises in the EU.

In order to help users monitor FADN results MTT Agrifood Research Finland has published an Internet service: EconomyDoctor FADN Standard Results. The service has a flexible user interface, which makes it easy to compare the figures for different Member States from accounting years 1989-2004. The service is available in English at www.mtt.fi/eufadn.

Thousands of reports

The Internet service contains the basic figures for Member States from accounting years 1989 - 2004. It also contains income statements, balance sheets, and key figure reports from each accounting year between 1998 and 2004.

Under "Own criteria" users can select classifiers to generate the report of their choice. Nine types of report are available under the section: income statement, balance sheet, key figures report, gross revenue report, subsidy report, cost report, labour input, arable land use and livestock report. The classifiers are: accounting year, member state, FADN region, economic size class, organic production, least favoured area, and five different production type classifications. A maximum of five classifiers may be selected per report.

It is easy to generate several thousands of reports to compare figures between Member States. The user simply selects the report type and the classifiers to be used and the service then generates tables dynamically on the basis of those selections. By moving the cursor above the variables and classifiers the user can obtain information about the calculation and definitions for the variables and classifiers.

The results are based entirely on the data files downloaded from the public Internet site of the EU DG AGRI. G.3. (http://ec.europa.eu/agriculture/rica/), where you can find more detailed information about the FADN (Farm Accountancy Data Network).

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...

Im Focus: Repairing defects in fiber-reinforced plastics more efficiently

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are frequently used in the aeronautic and automobile industry. However, the repair of workpieces made of these composite materials is often less profitable than exchanging the part. In order to increase the lifetime of FRP parts and to make them more eco-efficient, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and the Apodius GmbH want to combine a new measuring device for fiber layer orientation with an innovative laser-based repair process.

Defects in FRP pieces may be production or operation-related. Whether or not repair is cost-effective depends on the geometry of the defective area, the tools...
