The CSO's final estimate of operating surplus in agriculture in 2014 shows an annual increase of 4.6%.
This follows an increase of 4.1% in 2013. The rise in operating surplus in 2014 can be mainly attributed to a decrease of 9.9% in the value of total intermediate consumption, primarily relating to expenditure on commercial feeding stuffs (-17.9%).

- Goods output at producer prices decreased by 5.3% or €390m with output valued at €7,000m
