AGRICULTURAL HOLDING (FOR ECONOMIC ACCOUNTS)

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
An agricultural holding is the economic unit under a single management engaged in agricultural production activities. The unit may also be engaged in non-agricultural activities so that this concept should not be interpreted too strictly; the aim is rather to value the final production of all agricultural products. Also, establishments or specialised units which provide agricultural services on a fee or contract basis should, in general, be included.
