The Agriculture, forestry and fishery statistics statistical book presents a selection of topical data. Information is presented for the European Union and its Member States, and is supplemented (when available) with data for EFTA members and for the acceding and candidate countries to the European Union. This publication is divided into seven chapters, providing facts and figures about farm structure, agricultural accounts and prices, agricultural products, agriculture and environment, forestry and fishery production. As 2015 marked the abolition of dairy quotas, this year a whole chapter is also dedicated to 30 years of quotas in the milk sector in the EU.

In the European Union (EU), the Member State contributing the most to the value of agricultural production was France (accounting for 18% of the EU total), followed at a distance by Germany (14%), Italy (13%), Spain (10%), the United Kingdom (8%), the Netherlands (7%) and Poland (5%). Together, these seven Member States represent around three-quarters of total EU agricultural output.
