M

the agricultural holding is in a mountainous area

O

the agricultural holding is in another area affected by specific constraints

N

the agricultural holding is not part of an area facing natural constraints

Legal personality of the agricultural holding

The legal personality of the agricultural holding depends on the holder’s status.

 

Legal and economic responsibility of the agricultural holding is assumed by a:

CGNR 005

Natural person who is sole holder, where the agricultural holding is independent

A single natural person who is the sole holder of an agricultural holding which is not linked to any agricultural holdings of other holders, either by common management or similar arrangements.

Agricultural holdings which fulfill this condition are called sole holder agricultural holdings.

CGNR 006

If yes, is the holder also the manager?

CGNR 007

If no, is the manager a member of the holder’s family?

CGNR 008

If yes, is the manager the spouse of the holder?

Shared ownership

Natural persons, who are the sole holders of an agricultural holding not linked to any agricultural holdings of other holders, and who share the ownership and management of the agricultural holding.

CGNR 010

Two or more natural persons who are partners, where the agricultural holding is a holding–group

Partner(s) of a group holding are natural persons who together own, rent or otherwise manage one agricultural holding or together manage their individual holdings as if they were one holding. Such cooperation must be either in conformity with the law or by written agreement.

CGNR 011

Legal person

CGNR 012

If yes, is the agricultural holding part of an enterprise group?

An enterprise group is an association of enterprises bound together by legal and/or financial links and controlled by the group head.

An ‘enterprise’ is the smallest combination of legal units that is an organisational unit producing goods or services, which benefits from a certain degree of autonomy in decision–making, especially for the allocation of its current resources. An enterprise carries out one or more activities at one or more locations. An enterprise may be a sole legal unit.

CGNR 013

The agricultural holding is a common land unit

For the purposes of data collection and recording, a ‘common land unit’ agricultural holding is an entity consisting of the utilised agricultural area (UAA) which is used under common rights by other agricultural holdings.

CGNR 014

The holder is a beneficiary of EU support for land or animals on the agricultural holding and thus included in the integrated administration and control system (IACS)

The holder is an active farmer within the meaning of Article 9 of Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council (5) or, where applicable, the most recent legislation and the application for a subsidy has been accepted.

CGNR 015

The holder is a young farmer or new entrant into farming who has received financial support for this purpose under the common agricultural policy (CAP) in the previous three years

The financial support can refer to direct payments under Articles 50 and 51 of Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013 or support provided by rural development programmes under Article 19(1), point (a)(i) – business start–up aid for young farmers of Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013 or where applicable the most recent legislation.

Manager of the agricultural holding

The manager of the agricultural holding is the natural person responsible for the normal daily financial and production activities of the agricultural holding.

maintaining the means of production;

(iii)

the activities directly derived from these productive actions.

The time spent on farm work on the agricultural holding is the working time actually devoted to farm work for the agricultural holding, excluding work in the households of the holder or manager.

Annual work unit (AWU) is the full–time equivalent employment, i.e. the total hours worked divided by the average annual hours worked in full–time jobs in the country.

Full–time means the minimum hours required by the national rules governing contracts of employment. If these do not state the number of annual hours then 1 800 hours is to be taken as the minimum figure (225 working days of eight hours per day).

only practical agricultural experience, if the manager’s experience was acquired through practical work on an agricultural holding;

BASIC

basic agricultural training, if the manager took any training courses completed at a general agricultural college and/or an institution specialising in certain subjects (including horticulture, viticulture, sylviculture, pisciculture, veterinary science, agricultural technology and associated subjects); a completed agricultural apprenticeship is regarded as basic training;

FULL

full agricultural training, if the manager took any training course continuously for the equivalent of at least 2 years full–time training after the end of compulsory education and completed at an agricultural college, university or other institute of higher education in agriculture, horticulture, viticulture, sylviculture, pisciculture, veterinary science, agricultural technology or an associated subject.

CGNR 021

Vocational training undertaken by manager during the last 12 months

If the manager took vocational training, a training measure or activity provided by a trainer or a training institution primarily aimed at the acquisition of new skills related to the farm activities or activities related directly to the agricultural holding or the development and improvement of existing ones.

Type of tenure of the UAA (in relation to the holder)

The type of tenure depends on the situation on a reference day of the year of the survey.

CGNR 022

Farming on own land

Hectares of UAA farmed by the agricultural holding and held by the holder as a property or farmed by the holder acting as a usufructuary or heritable long–term leaseholder or under some other equivalent type of tenure.

CGNR 023

The agricultural holding participates in national or regional environmental certification schemes such as those referred to in Article 43 paragraph 2 and paragraph 3, point (b) of Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013 or in Annex IX thereto (current certification schemes equivalent to the greening payment of CAP) or, where applicable the most recent legislation, and the application for a subsidy has been accepted.


II.   VARIABLES OF LAND

The total area of the agricultural holding consists of the utilised agricultural area (arable land, permanent grassland, permanent crops and kitchen gardens) and other farmland (unutilised agricultural land, wooded area and other land not elsewhere classified).

The area to be collected for each item is known as the main area and refers to the physical area of the parcel(s), regardless of whether there was only one single crop or several crops during the crop year. In the case of annual crops, the main area corresponds to the sown area; in case of permanent crops the main area is the total planted area; in the case of successive crops, the main area corresponds to the area occupied by the main crop in the parcel during the year; in the case of simultaneous crops, it corresponds to the area where the crops co–exist. In this manner, each area is listed only once.

The main crop is the one with the highest economic value. When it is not possible to determine what the main crop is on the basis of the production value, then the main crop will be the one which occupies the ground for the longest period of time amongst all the crops harvested during the reference year.

The utilised agricultural area (UAA) is the total area taken up by arable land, permanent grassland, permanent crops and kitchen gardens used by the agricultural holding, regardless of the type of tenure.

Crop rotation is the practice of alternating crops grown in a specific field in a planned pattern or sequence in successive crop years so that crops of the same species are not grown without interruption in the same field. In a crop rotation the crops are normally changed annually, but it is possible to have a crop rotation with multiannual crops.

Open field and areas under glass or high accessible cover are to be reported separately.

For land variables, the use of the land shall refer to the reference year.
