It appears that the monitoring of profitability by MTT Agrifood Research Finland gives a more pessimistic picture of farms' profitability than the data that were used for comparison. The audit evaluated the reliability of the information on which profitability monitoring is based and the soundness of the assumptions that are used in calculating profitability. The aim was to get some idea of how well monitoring describes farms' real profitability from the perspective of individual enterprises. This document contains a summary of the main results of the audit. The entire audit report is available only in Finnish.
