Detailed structure and explanatory notes

ISIC Rev.4 code 01

Structure   

Hierarchy
  • Section: A - Agriculture, forestry and fishing
  • Division: 01 - Crop and animal production, hunting and related service activities

Breakdown:

This Division is divided into the following Groups:

  • 011 - Growing of non-perennial crops
  • 012 - Growing of perennial crops
  • 013 - Plant propagation
  • 014 - Animal production
  • 015 - Mixed farming
  • 016 - Support activities to agriculture and post-harvest crop activities
  • 017 - Hunting, trapping and related service activities

Explanatory note

This division includes two basic activities, namely the production of crop products and production of animal products, covering also the forms of organic agriculture, the growing of genetically modified crops and the raising of genetically modified animals.

This division also includes service activities incidental to agriculture, as well as hunting, trapping and related activities.

Group 015 (Mixed farming) breaks with the usual principles for identifying main activity. It accepts that many agricultural holdings have reasonably balanced crop and animal production and that it would be arbitrary to classify them in one category or the other.

Agricultural activities exclude any subsequent processing of the agricultural products (classified under divisions 10 and 11 (Manufacture of food products and beverages) and division 12 (Manufacture of tobacco products)), beyond that needed to prepare them for the primary markets. However, the preparation of products for the primary markets is included here.

The division excludes field construction (e.g. agricultural land terracing, drainage, preparing rice paddies etc.) classified in section F (Construction) and buyers and cooperative associations engaged in the marketing of farm products classified in section G.
