The European Council and Parliament agreed yesterday on the way regional farming statistics will be reported in the EU.

The aim is to modernise Europe's agricultural statistics system in order to bring it in line with developments within the sector, including the newly reformed Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).

The new regulation formalises the requirement for Member States to report regional agricultural data to the Commission.

"Today’s agreement marks an important step forward in our efforts to modernise the European agricultural statistics system, thus improving the quantity and quality of data available for policy making, administration and research," said Simona Vrevc, chair of the Special Committee on Agriculture. "We firmly believe that this regional data will also contribute to a more targeted and effective implementation of the CAP."

The rules will take effect from 2023 at the earliest and will contribute to better reporting under the new CAP.
