Provisional crop estimates

Research bureau Delphy provides crop estimates per hectare and per cultivation area, based on counts, estimations and visits to farmers as well as meetings with other locals involved in that particular area. CBS then compiles national yields per hectare after weighing for all the crops involved.

Delphy is a private company and the successor of Agricultural Advisory Service DLV Plant. Commissioned by CBS, Delphy provides yields per hectare and per cultivation area; they do not publish these figures themselves. It was privatised at the beginning of this century.
