08.10.2019 - In 2019, Swiss agriculture is expected to generate a gross value added of CHF 4.2 billion, an increase of 2.1% compared with the previous year. The situation has improved on the pork market and both harvests of fodder and cereals have been better than in 2018. In contrast, fruit production has seen a decline compared with the exceptional results observed in 2018. Furthermore, production costs have continued to increase. These initial estimates for the current year are based on the economic accounts for agriculture compiled by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
