Agriculture was more profitable in 2017

Farmers in Poland earned 30 percent more last year than in 2016 thanks to the strong market and production growth, said the head of the Institute of agriculture and food Economics.

The average farmer earned PLN 12,700 (EUR 3,000) more in 2017 than the year before, the institute’s director, Andrzej Kowalski, said.

He added that the value of farm production grew some 12 percent year-on-year, while costs increased by two percent.

Livestock and dairy production brought the most profits last year, while orchards and crops were the least profitable, Kowalski said.

He added that large farms in Poland’s west and northwest made the biggest financial gains last year.
