Given that 2015 has been declared the International Year of Soils, Eurostat has included a Survey on agricultural production methods in this year's edition of the regional yearbook, more specifically in its 12th chapter. The first concept emphasised in the survey is conservation agriculture. We hope it is a way forward towards real conservation agriculture.

You can download the 12th chapter as a booklet at our downloads section (http://www.ecaf.org/downloads/booklets). Full Eurostat regional yearbook 2015 can be downloaded here.
