According to the first estimate on Economic Accounts for Agriculture (EAA) for 2016, the income from Agricultural activity in Portugal, per annual working unit, is expected to increase 5.8% in real terms. In the previous year, agricultural income increased 2.9%. The evolution of this indicator is mainly associated with the nominal increase foreseen for Other subsidies on production (38.1%) that more than compensates the nominal decrease of Gross Value Added (GVA) (-7.7%). Comparing to 2015, the agricultural output should present a nominal decrease (-3.3%) as a consequence of a decrease in volume (-4.5%), mitigated by the increase in basic prices (+1.2%).
