Selected Income Indicators

Agricultural income (operating surplus) for 2011 shows an annual increase of 30.1% before deductions for interest payments and land rental (see Table 1). This follows a 27.4% increase in 2010. The increase of 30.1% in 2011 can be mostly attributed to an increase of 16.8% in goods output.

  • The value of goods output by the agriculture sector increased by 16.8% in 2011, or €907.7m.
  • The value of cattle output increased by 19.5%, or €292.5m, primarily due to higher prices in 2011.
