Agriculture in Austria
More about this subject
Plant productionAgricultural production ensures the supply with food, feed and renewable resources. Agricultural areas (arable farming) and horticultural, vegetable, fruit and wine growing areas serve the production of plant products. In order to ensure agricultural production it is required to use inputs, such as seeds, plant protection products, fertilizers and feedstuffs to the necessary extent according to the principles of good agricultural practice.
Animal productionAnimal production is subject to natural changes. Animals play most different roles in our society. The production of high-quality food, the contribution to shaping Austria’s cultivated landscape, and the use of animals for leisure activities are examples of the wide range of uses. On the following pages you will find lots of information about our farm animals such as cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, poultry and horses – and/or about their products like meat, eggs, milk, etc.
