Press release 026 / 2017-01-20: 2016 farm structure survey: number of agricultural holdings down by 9,000 compared with 2013
WIESBADEN - The process of structural change continues in agriculture, though at a slower pace. The Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) reports that the number of agricultural holdings declined by roughly 3% (approximately 9,000 holdings) between 2013 and 2016. However, the decline recorded between the 2010 census of agriculture and the 2013 farm structure survey was even nearly 5% (-14,000 holdings).
