Definition: Gross production
Gross production is the sum of the value of the principal product(s) and of the secondary product(s). The values are calculated by multiplying production per unit (less any losses) by the farm gate price, VAT not included. Gross production also includes subsidies linked to products, to area and/or to livestock.
