Auteurs :
VAN HECKE, E.
MEERT, H.

Description :
The A. uses various databases and approaches. A distinction is made between income per worker, family agricultural income from the agricultural holding and total family income, including non-agricultural earnings. A quarter of full-time agricultural holdings have an overall family income of less than 10 000 euros, or less than the guaranteed minimum wage. Other aspects discussed include the investment burden, the patrimony of farmers, the outlook for the future and the regional differences in the problem of low income.
