Rete di Informazione Contabile Agricola


WHAT'S IT


The RICA is a sample survey carried out in all the Members States of the European Union. It is the only harmonised European source on farm management.

HOW IT WORKS


The RICA is coordinated at European and National level by specific committees. The CREA is the liaison body between Italy and the European Union.

WHAT IS IT FOR


The information framework of the Italian RICA, wider than the Community one, allows to carry out analysis at the farm, sector and territorial level.

JOIN RICA
