Less conversion of productive land

Conversion of arable land to non-agricultural uses. 2005. Per cent

Area of productive land transferred to non-agricultural use. 1993-2005. Decares

This is the lowest registered area of arable land transferred since 1980. The government has declared a national goal for 50 per cent reduction of agricultural land transferred to non-agricultural use by 2010. In the period 1994-2003 there was a yearly transferring of productive land to non-agricultural use of 13 360 decares. As from 2005, the reporting system is simplified, and the detailed governmental administrative data system is replaced by a questionnaire through the municipality state reporting system named KOSTRA.

In addition to report land transferred to various types of non-agricultural use, the questionnaire also considers decisions taken about land reclamation, splitting of agricultural property and application for concession to buy a farm.
