Latvia to measure climate neutrality in agriculture

The Central Statistical Bureau (CSB) has started collecting data for the farm integrated statistics survey. Such data collection has been ongoing since 2001, but this time the Bureau will also collect data on the climate neutrality of randomly surveyed agricultural holdings, Latvian Television reported September 19.

22 thousand farms that have received the Bureau's letters are expected to participate in the CSB survey sample. The sampled farms are economically active and manage more than a hectare of agricultural land.

Armands Plāte, director of the CSB's Department of Agricultural and Environmental Statistics, said: "The basic task here in this survey is to monitor basic information on farms, land use, agricultural workers and other activities. There are also new sets of indicators that we will collect information about. These would include soil treatment and conservation methods, apple plantations and also agricultural machinery and equipment."

According to the data obtained, it is also intended to study how climate-neutral the activities of Latvian farmers are.

The poll began on September 18 and is scheduled to be completed on January 15 next year.

The Bureau expects the survey results to be available in May 2024, but they will be entered into the database in December next year.
