Decline in production of fodder crops
The total production of meadows for mowing in 2005 was about 2.66 million tonnes, converted by dry matter into hay. This is 5 per cent less than the year before, and corresponds to a yield of 607 kilos of hay per decare.
Total yield of green fodder and silage 2005 was 280 400 tonnes in 2005. The yield of potatoes was 317 000 tonnes, corresponding to a per decare yield of 2 300 kilos.
