PACIOLI 5, Development of FADNs

held in June 1997 in Sweden.

It was the follow-up of four successful workshops of the concerted action PACIOLI. PACIOLI-5 was mainly dedicated to innovation in the Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN) of the European Commission. The trigger for this theme was an invitation to tender for a feasibility study on the FADN's Farm Return. A project proposal was developed, that became the basis of the Ricastings project

In addition to this theme, papers were presented on several topics that relate to FADN's.
Topics were:

  • the future needs of the Community Farm Typology;
  • the impact of CAP reform and alternative compensation schemes on German agriculture;
  • the measurement of total net income in Norwegian farming;
  • The improvement of the use of accounting data for public purposes, with special reference to France
