“The situation in the agriculture sector recently has mainly been impacted by climate conditions, which were rather favourable for work early this year.

The operating forecasts assume that during this year the value of the company’s land holdings will not change, there will be no land purchase or sale transactions, and there will be no changes in provisions for receivable amounts or impact of tenant debts on the size of the administration fee.
