"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: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
