France is 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.

This information is issued by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, on the occasion of the publication of its statistical book on agriculture, forestry and fishery.

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.
