About 51% of Hungarian farmers surveyed by agriculture portal Agroinform.hu termed last year's season "poor" in light of market anomalies and higher input prices, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Around 6% of the farmers who delivered negative assessments of last season plan to make "fundamental changes" and 19% signaled they could leave farming altogether.
About 19% of the farmers surveyed by Agroinform.hu said last season was "weaker than average" and 30% delivered a "positive" assessment.
Agroinform.hu surveyed several hundred farmers for its 2023 AgroFeeling gauge of the sector. Over three-fourths had farms of more than 150 hectares.
