Production specialisation of small area farms

In the EU28, of all farms specialised in cereal production, 54% are small area farms. Small area farms account for a high proportion of farms specialising in horticultural production, of vineyards and orchards (81% ,73% and 76% respectively).

The infographic presents, for a selection of agricultural products, the part that small area farms represent in the total number of farms under each product specialisation. In Slovakia, for instance, small farms are predominant among orchards and those producing vegetables, whilst they are less than 50% of the vineyards and farms specialised in cereals production. In Italy or in Romania small area farms are predominant in any of the selected production specialities.
