Concept selected: Farming of combined arable land


This characteristic refers to the arable land during the reference year. It only considers the work carried out on the main (not successive) crops between the harvest and the following sowing.
It excludes the area of those herbaceous crops not sown during the reference year, for example, hops or pluri-annual green fodder.
It also excludes the land for permanent pastures, kitchen gardens, woody crops and greenhouse areas.
Three types of farming are considered:
- Conventional (ploughed with outlet or discs).
- Minimum cultivation.
- Direct sowing (not cultivation).
