Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The primary purpose of this project is to supply early information on changes in crop area between the current and previous years, and to give an indication of the change in potential yield between the two years. The territory was divided into four types according to the percentage of arable land, and 53 sites selected. A smaller sample of farms in each segment can be enough for dominant crops but 32 points are kept to provide sufficient information on less common crops. A three stage sampling method is used.
