Data description

Economic accounts for agriculture are satellite accounts of the National Accounts, which provide complementary information and use concepts specially adapted to the specific nature of the sector. The architecture of the accounts consists of three accounts for current operations - "Production Account", "Generation of income Account", "Entrepreneurial income Account" and one account for accumulation - "Capital Account" as their consistency and completeness is provided in accordance with ESA '2010. The data on satellite economic accounts are developed under the basic methodology of Eurostat, published in the "Manual on the economic Accounts for Agriculture and Forestry EAA / EAF". Their main purpose is to provide baseline information for the development of the Gross Domestic Product, and in particular the contribution of the sector "Agriculture" in the national economy. Secondly, they are intended to measure the level of income of the agricultural holdings and to reflect trends in it over the years.

Classification system

· Classification of Economic Activities - 2008 (CEA-2008, for international use NACE.BG-2008);

· Nomenclature of agriculture, forestry and fishing products (PRODAGRO).

Sector coverage

The data include the following economic activities:

01.1 Growing of annual crops

01.2 Growing of perennial crops

01.3 Activity of nurseries (excluding forest nurseries)

01.4 Livestock

01.5 Combined agricultural holding

01.6 Support activities for agriculture

01.7 Hunting, trapping and related service activities.

Statistical concepts and definitions

The "Output of Agricultural Industry" represents the sum of the value of output produced by all agricultural activities (crop, livestock and agricultural services). The "Output of Agricultural Industry" includes also the value of goods and services produced in inseparable non-agricultural secondary activities (processing of farm products, agro-tourism, crafts, etc.). These activities are closely related to agricultural production for which information on output, intermediate consumption, compensation of employees, labor input or gross fixed capital formation can not be separated from the main agricultural activity. The "Output of Agricultural Industry" is calculated by developing a of resources-use balance sheets for the crop and animal products and growing of livestock on the farm in quantity and value terms, using the formula "quantity x price".

To these the output of agricultural services and of inseparable non-agricultural secondary activities is added. The calculated data refer to the final output, which according to the methodology for the compilation of the Economic Accounts for Agriculture includes the value of:

· sales of agricultural products and livestock (excluding sales of livestock between farms);

· change in inventories;

· production of investment goods for own account (production of propagating material for perennials in crop and livestock productivity);

· final consumption of agricultural products in farm (fresh consumption of agricultural products produced on the farm);

· processed products in agricultural holdings (in separable activities);

· agricultural products consumed on farms, but in different economic activities - for example, plant products (forage) used for feeding of animals. The Final Output from Agricultural Industry does not include the value of:

· output produced and consumed in the same economic activity (seeds used for sowing, which are self-produced, milk for animal feed);

· additional animal products used in the crop growing (manure).

The "Intermediate consumption in Agriculture" includes the value of all goods and services used as inputs in the production process, excluding fixed assets whose use is recorded as consumption of fixed capital. These goods and services are processed, or entirely consumed during the manufacturing process. The detailed breakdown of the various categories of intermediate consumption shows the connection which the purchased inputs, fertilizers and products establish between the Agriculture and other sectors of the economy. Therefore, intermediate consumption is a good indicator of the intensity of agricultural production. The main components of intermediate consumption:

· Seeds and planting stocks;

· Energy, Fuels;

· Fertilizers and soil improvements;

· Plant protection products;

· Veterinary expenses;

· Feeding-stuffs;

· Maintenance of equipment and facilities;

. Maintenance of buildings

· Support services;

· Agricultural Services;

. FISIM

· Other goods and services.

Goods and services - intermediate goods are valued at purchase price, operating at the time of their inclusion in the process. The purchase price is the amount actually paid by the purchaser at the time of purchase of the products. This price includes taxes on products less subsidies on products (excluding VAT) and transportation costs separately paid by the purchaser to the acquisition of the desired products in its own time and place. The price also reflects discounts made for purchasing of quantities or at reduced prices.

The "Value added in Agriculture" is the balancing item in the "Production Account" of satellite economic accounts. It measures the value created by agricultural holdings within the calendar year and is a key element in measuring the productivity of the sector "Agriculture". Depending on whether it includes or not includes the value of consumption of fixed capital, it is defined as gross or net value added.

The "Consumption of Fixed Capital in Agriculture" measures the wear and tear of aging fixed capital goods. The foreseeable wear and tear and obsolescence of fixed capital goods during the accounting period is indirect cost until their replacing with new ones. The Consumption of Fixed Capital in Agriculture is calculated for all tangible and intangible fixed assets, improvements to non-produced assets and costs associated with the transfer of ownership. Consumption of fixed capital is not calculated for stocks, work in progress and for non-produced assets such as land, underground deposits and patented assets.

The "Income at factor cost in Agriculture" or "Net value added at Factor Cost" is the value (calculated at basic prices) generated within the calendar year of all agricultural units involved in production, less other taxes on production plus other subsidies on production. Thus, the index measures the remuneration of all factors of production (land, capital and labor).

The "Net Operating Surplus/Net Mixed Income in Agriculture" measures the yield from land, capital and non-salaried labor in agriculture. The indicator is calculated by excluding from the net value added the compensation of employees and other taxes on production and adding other subsidies on production. The "Net operating surplus/net mixed income" is part of the balancing item of the Generation of income Account. The "Net Entrepreneurial income in Agriculture" measures the compensation of non-salaried labour, remuneration from land belonging to the units and the yeild, araising from the use of capital. The indicator is calculated by adding the value of the received by farms organized as companies interests to the value of the net operating surplus/mixed income and deducting interest and rents paid by farms.

Data description

Economic accounts for agriculture are satellite accounts of the National Accounts, which provide complementary information and use concepts specially adapted to the specific nature of the sector. The architecture of the accounts consists of three accounts for current operations - "Production Account", "Generation of income Account", "Entrepreneurial income Account" and one account for accumulation - "Capital Account" as their consistency and completeness is provided in accordance with ESA '2010. The data on satellite economic accounts are developed under the basic methodology of Eurostat, published in the "Manual on the economic Accounts for Agriculture and Forestry EAA / EAF". Their main purpose is to provide baseline information for the development of the Gross Domestic Product, and in particular the contribution of the sector "Agriculture" in the national economy. Secondly, they are intended to measure the level of income of the agricultural holdings and to reflect trends in it over the years.

Classification system

· Classification of Economic Activities - 2008 (CEA-2008, for international use NACE.BG-2008);

· Nomenclature of agriculture, forestry and fishing products (PRODAGRO).

Sector coverage

The data include the following economic activities:

01.1 Growing of annual crops

01.2 Growing of perennial crops

01.3 Activity of nurseries (excluding forest nurseries)

01.4 Livestock

01.5 Combined agricultural holding

01.6 Support activities for agriculture

01.7 Hunting, trapping and related service activities.

Statistical concepts and definitions

The "Output of Agricultural Industry" represents the sum of the value of output produced by all agricultural activities (crop, livestock and agricultural services). The "Output of Agricultural Industry" includes also the value of goods and services produced in inseparable non-agricultural secondary activities (processing of farm products, agro-tourism, crafts, etc.). These activities are closely related to agricultural production for which information on output, intermediate consumption, compensation of employees, labor input or gross fixed capital formation can not be separated from the main agricultural activity. The "Output of Agricultural Industry" is calculated by developing a of resources-use balance sheets for the crop and animal products and growing of livestock on the farm in quantity and value terms, using the formula "quantity x price".

To these the output of agricultural services and of inseparable non-agricultural secondary activities is added. The calculated data refer to the final output, which according to the methodology for the compilation of the Economic Accounts for Agriculture includes the value of:

· sales of agricultural products and livestock (excluding sales of livestock between farms);

· change in inventories;

· production of investment goods for own account (production of propagating material for perennials in crop and livestock productivity);

· final consumption of agricultural products in farm (fresh consumption of agricultural products produced on the farm);

· processed products in agricultural holdings (in separable activities);

· agricultural products consumed on farms, but in different economic activities - for example, plant products (forage) used for feeding of animals. The Final Output from Agricultural Industry does not include the value of:

· output produced and consumed in the same economic activity (seeds used for sowing, which are self-produced, milk for animal feed);

· additional animal products used in the crop growing (manure).

The "Intermediate consumption in Agriculture" includes the value of all goods and services used as inputs in the production process, excluding fixed assets whose use is recorded as consumption of fixed capital. These goods and services are processed, or entirely consumed during the manufacturing process. The detailed breakdown of the various categories of intermediate consumption shows the connection which the purchased inputs, fertilizers and products establish between the Agriculture and other sectors of the economy. Therefore, intermediate consumption is a good indicator of the intensity of agricultural production. The main components of intermediate consumption:

· Seeds and planting stocks;

· Energy, Fuels;

· Fertilizers and soil improvements;

· Plant protection products;

· Veterinary expenses;

· Feeding-stuffs;

· Maintenance of equipment and facilities;

. Maintenance of buildings

· Support services;

· Agricultural Services;

. FISIM

· Other goods and services.

Goods and services - intermediate goods are valued at purchase price, operating at the time of their inclusion in the process. The purchase price is the amount actually paid by the purchaser at the time of purchase of the products. This price includes taxes on products less subsidies on products (excluding VAT) and transportation costs separately paid by the purchaser to the acquisition of the desired products in its own time and place. The price also reflects discounts made for purchasing of quantities or at reduced prices.

The "Value added in Agriculture" is the balancing item in the "Production Account" of satellite economic accounts. It measures the value created by agricultural holdings within the calendar year and is a key element in measuring the productivity of the sector "Agriculture". Depending on whether it includes or not includes the value of consumption of fixed capital, it is defined as gross or net value added.

The "Consumption of Fixed Capital in Agriculture" measures the wear and tear of aging fixed capital goods. The foreseeable wear and tear and obsolescence of fixed capital goods during the accounting period is indirect cost until their replacing with new ones. The Consumption of Fixed Capital in Agriculture is calculated for all tangible and intangible fixed assets, improvements to non-produced assets and costs associated with the transfer of ownership. Consumption of fixed capital is not calculated for stocks, work in progress and for non-produced assets such as land, underground deposits and patented assets.

The "Income at factor cost in Agriculture" or "Net value added at Factor Cost" is the value (calculated at basic prices) generated within the calendar year of all agricultural units involved in production, less other taxes on production plus other subsidies on production. Thus, the index measures the remuneration of all factors of production (land, capital and labor).

The "Net Operating Surplus/Net Mixed Income in Agriculture" measures the yield from land, capital and non-salaried labor in agriculture. The indicator is calculated by excluding from the net value added the compensation of employees and other taxes on production and adding other subsidies on production. The "Net operating surplus/net mixed income" is part of the balancing item of the Generation of income Account. The "Net Entrepreneurial income in Agriculture" measures the compensation of non-salaried labour, remuneration from land belonging to the units and the yeild, araising from the use of capital. The indicator is calculated by adding the value of the received by farms organized as companies interests to the value of the net operating surplus/mixed income and deducting interest and rents paid by farms.
