Abstract: The data give us a picture of the sector made up of light and shadow. Even for the agricultural sector, the 2012 was the worst year since the economic crisis, with a fall in the value added, in real terms, of 4.4% over the previous year. Unlike the previous year, the downward trend has been stronger in the northern areas (-5.1%), which have experienced the consequences of the long period of drought that has characterized the summer of 2012, thus damaging all agricultural sectors and reducing both the quantity and the quality of the products. The recession has been exacerbated by the decline in investment (-9.6% in real terms), a symptom of the uncertainty linked to the economic cycle and the credit crunch that has discouraged funding beyond the short term, which undergone a decline of 6.7%. Nonetheless, it can be traced some positive signs in our agricultural sector and in the central role it has in the economy of the country. Actually, agriculture triggers a turnover of the total value of 252 billion euro, representing 17% of the Italian GDP. The decrease occurred in agriculture, concerning employment, has been more limited than that of other sectors. In the South, the area most in need for youth employment, there was, indeed, an increase in the number of employed in agriculture, in the age group 15-35 years (5.8%) Even the results of the survey on the land market, carried out by INEA, induce some hope: after decades of uninterrupted climb, in 2012 land prices decreased by 0.1% on a constant basis and by 3.1% in real terms. The improvement of our trade with foreign countries (+2.4% of increase in normalized balance of the agricultural sector which rises to 28% if we consider the entire agro-industrial sector) it should be considered carefully because it is indicative of the stability of the Italian products and of their reputation throughout the world. Our agriculture, our food products, are the best presentation of Italy and the part of the national identity, perhaps, more genuinely felt not only by the operators but also by the consumers and citizens. Made in Italy, in the food sector, continues to play an important key-role to overcome the crisis and create a solid path of recovery for the whole country.
Oltre a presentare il consueto quadro sulla situazione del sistema agroalimentare italiano, l'edizione 2013 contiene due novità: un'analisi sulla diversificazione delle attività produttive svolte dalle aziende agricole, e un approfondimento su un canale di commercializzazione in forte crescita negli ultimi anni, la vendita diretta dei prodotti aziendali sia all'interno dell'azienda sia attraverso i mercati contadini
