"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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
