A reference about the definition of agriculture

※ 발췌:

After discussion between Denmark and Sweden, a first proposal was presented in the WGAmeeting at Helsinki, 12-13 October 2000:
Agriculture:
The use of land for production of food, fodder, fibre, energy, medicine, etc and
for grazing (landscape preservation).
Questions:
-  Need of minimum level?   …..(one grazing horse)
-  What about animals kept for other purposes than mentioned above, for
example riding schools, stables on racecourses, circuses, pet breeding
etc.????
-  Nutrient losses from horticulture???

This draft suggests a lower limit for what is agriculture and what is not. Sweden and Denmark think this is necessary so that non-commercial home gardens are excluded from the recommendations. A possible lower limit could be units with 0.5 hectare arable land and/or an animal stock of 5 animal units. Thus agriculture activities are businesses with more than 0.5 hectare arable land and/or more than 5 animal units. One animal unit is one milking cow; two horses or three sows with pigs and porkers etc. (see appendix to HELCOM Recommendation 13/7).
