EU seeks better data for permanent crop areas

The European Commission has issued proposals aimed at improving statistics on permanent crops, such as fruit and grapevines, in the EU. Statistical surveys of the key crops have already been carried out by EU member states, but users and producers of the data have underlined the need for an update, the Commission says. It is proposing a regulation that would improve harmonisation and comparability of the data, and provide a better breakdown of information and more timely data. Member states would produce area figures every five years, starting in 2012. The exception would be for vines for purposes other than the production of table grapes, where data would start from 2015.
