Advanced key figures provided by the new Internet service reveal large variation in the profitability of agriculture between EU Member States. Agriculture is most profitable in some new EU Member States and least profitable in certain Scandinavian countries.
According to the key figure for profitability ratio EU agricultural profitability improved slightly during the period 1989–2004, but overall is still not particularly profitable. On average, the larger the farms, the better the profitability. The solvency of agricultural enterprises is excellent throughout the EU.
Thousands of reports via internet
The Internet service contains the advanced key figures and three reports for Member States for accounting years 1989–2004. Under “Own criteria” users can select classifiers to generate their chosen key figure reports. Three reports are available: entrepreneur’s profit, profitability ratio, and return on assets. The classifiers are: accounting year, member state, FADN region, economic size class, organic production, least favoured area, and five different production type classification variables. From two to five classifiers may be selected per report.
The user selects the report and the classifiers to be used, and the service generates tables dynamically on the basis of these selections. Several thousands of reports can easily be generated for comparing profitability and solvency of agricultural enterprises in Member States.
The key figures, calculated by MTT, are based on data files downloadable from the public Internet site of the EU DG AGRI. G.3. (http://ec.europa.eu/agriculture/rica/). For 2004 the FADN database covers 74,000 farms across the EU, and their weighted results are representative of the 4 million farm enterprises for that year. The EconomyDoctor FADN Advanced Results Internet service containing all the key figures is available in English at www.mtt.fi/eufadn-adv

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
