Czech Republic Agriculture

Czech Republic flag and oilseed rape

Around half (54%) the country’s land area is farmed – approximately 4.2m ha – of which approximately 70% is used for arable cropping. Agriculture accounts for 2.9% of the national workforce, and its output is valued at €4.6bn. Crops make up 61% of the output, 39% being attributable to cereals and oilseeds.

Much of the cereal crop supports the country’s numerous breweries; at 166 litres per person, the Czech Republic is the world’s highest per capita beer-consuming nation.
