Economic accounts for agriculture: estimates for 2023 - A mixed 2023 for Swiss agriculture

Neuch√Ętel, 21.11.2023 - In 2023, Swiss agriculture is expected to generate a gross value added of CHF 4.5 billion, an increase of 4.2% compared with the previous year, in particular because of larger forage harvests. In contrast, a gloomy spring followed by drought adversely affected many field crops as well as fruit and vegetables. Animal production was broadly comparable to that of 2022. These initial estimates for the current year are based on the economic accounts for agriculture compiled by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
