Supply balance sheets

Supply balance sheets are used to represent the supply and use of agricultural production (food and feedstuffs). One key aspect is to provide information on the food sector subordinated to agriculture. But the balance sheets also provide information on such parameters as the degree of self-sufficiency or per capita consumption.
