14 DATA Eurostat Land prices and rents - annual data (APRI_AP_ALAND) Macroeconomic indicators Farm Accountancy Data Network - FADN Total UAA (SE025) Rented UAA (SE030) Rent paid (SE375) Rent per ha (SE375/SE030) European Commission, DG AGRI SPS implementation Other policy measures (coupled, environmental, rural development etc.)

15 DATA National statistics National/regional statistical offices Land registries Tax authorities Qualitative data - expert interviews Drivers of land sales prices Drivers of rental prices SPS implementation and its impact on land values Deflator : GDP deflator for Germany, OECD : Harmonised indices of consumer prices for Euro area, Eurostat

16 Limitations of the Study Short time span since the implementation of the SPS Some of effects may emerge with delay because of land market regulations No econometric analysis possible due to data limitations Hence not possible to assess the confidence interval perform robustness checks of the results. Counterfactual? Impact of SPS depends on capitalization of SPS and on capitalization of pre-sps subsidies Other contemporaneous effects (changes in food prices, energy prices, ) may be important

17 Benefits & Insights of the Study First EU-wide comparative (MS-level) documentation & analysis of implementation of the SPS land market structure & functioning land market regulations Thorough review of literature (theory and empirics) and development of clear analytical framework for interpreting current data and useful for future work Model development provides set of clear hypotheses for future econometric analyses Set of insights and hypotheses from qualitative empirical analyses Rich set of data and information which can form the basis of more structured time series datasets for the future

32 Assessment of drivers of land values Drivers of agricultural land values Drivers of sales prices Drivers of rental prices Survey data extracted from the assessment of interviewed national experts (min 7 per country/region) Qualitative analysis supported by two econometric studies The Netherlands Finland

34 Determinants of EU ag land prices (rental & sales) General [Based on qualitative information!] Most important factors: Agricultural commodity prices Subsidies Infrastructure (expansion) Urban pressures High heterogeneity across countries

35 Determinants of EU ag land prices (rental & sales) General [Based on qualitative information!] Difficult to draw general conclusions due to high heterogeneity of regions, agricultural activities, land quality, etc. CAP subsidies one factor among others Marginal areas seem to be more affected than high value land (makes intuitive sense) Results largely consistent with theory (if take into account market imperfections and/or transaction costs in theory!)

36 Impact of SPS on land markets SPS implementation Market with SPS entitlements SPS impact on land markets and structural change Conclusions

37 Flanders Wallonia France Ireland Netherlands Spain Scotland Finland Germany Northern Ireland Sweden England % of UAA. Activated entitlements (% of UAA) Historic model Hybrid model

38 Not activated entitlements Not activated entitlements Average value of entitlements % of distributed entitlements Euro/entitlement Belgium Flanders Wallonia Finland France Germany Greece n.a. n.a. Ireland Italy n.a Netherlands Spain Sweden UK England n.a. 268 Scotland N. Ireland

39 Not activated entitlements Not activated entitlements for most MS is less than 3%. Exception is Belgium: 7% of entitlements were not activated. This is due to declining livestock sector; more special entitlements are unactivated than regular entitlements. The value of un-activated entitlements tends to be lower than the value of activated entitlements. Common reasons for non-activation: non-availability of eligible area; administrative burden, other.

40 Value of entitlements There is significant variation among and within MS. The variation is determined by crop structure; productivity; SPS model, decoupling.

41 Distribution of land (%) Distribution of SPS entitlements in Historic (Netherlands) and Hybrid (Sweden) model Netherlands (Historic) 10 5 Sweden (hybrid) Value of entitlement (% of average value; average value=100)

42 Euro/entailment 450 Value of entitlements in different regions in Italy Plain areas Hilly areas Mountain areas North Center South Insular area

43 Tradability of entitlements constraints : (i) regulatory constrains (ii) market imperfections (e.g. credit market, uncertainty). In general entitlements are tradable constraints are imposed generally in the EU as well as each MS has some flexibility to introduce country specific restrictions. Spain, Italy, and France appear to be the most restrictive countries in terms of entitlement tradability.

44 Tradability of entitlements: country specific restrictions Belgium France Finland Germany Greece Ireland Italy Tradability of entitlements Entitlements are tradable within regions. Entitlements are tradable within regions. Taxes imposed on transfers depending on type of transaction. No specific restrictions.

Spain Sweden UK Taxes imposed on transfers depending on type of transaction. Entitlements are tradable within regions. Entitlements are tradable within regions.

45 Market with SPS entitlements Trade with entitlements is most often conducted directly between farmers or with using services of market agents and farm organizations. most entitlement trade takes place at local level. some unofficial trade may occur among family members (e.g. Italy, Greece, N. Ireland). The size of the trade ranges from around 1% in Germany to around 12% in Sweden.

46 Trade in Entitlements Traded entitlements/total activated entitlements (%) Belgium Flanders 7 Wallonia Finland 5.1 France 5.4 Germany Greece Small Ireland n.a. n.a. Italy n.a. n.a. Netherlands Spain 2.4 Sweden UK England Small Scotland n.a. n.a. N. Ireland Small

47 Explaining transactions with entitlements Entitlement trade may occur with: Structural change When farmers own more entitlements than they have eligible area Decoupling With historical SPS model trade likely driven by structural change: entitlement allocated based on land allocation in while SPS implemented in With hybrid SPS model trade likely driven by insufficient eligible area. Structural change is less important as entitlements were allocated based on area used in the first year of SPS application. Hence, one should expect more trade with historical model than with hybrid model.

48 Explaining transactions with entitlements Empirical evidence partially confirms this: Historical M: BE, FR, NL: more trade; Hybrid M.: DE, EN, NI: small trade; Hybrid M.: Sweden; FI: large trade?? could be due to decoupling. Greece appears to confirm static effect: no active land market = no entitlement trade. Spain also low trade: could be due to taxes on entitlement transfers, and due to lower rate of decoupling. Northern Ireland: the entitlement trade is small probably due to possibility to stack entitlements. Staking can accommodate structural effects and insufficient eligible area. Similar is expected to hold for Ireland but data not available.

52 Market price of entitlements With perfect markets the market price of entitlement in 2007 should be as follows: Discount rate 5% 10% SPS runs until SPS runs indefinitely 10 20

53 Market price of entitlements Price is low. In most MS the price is between 1 to 3 times higher than the face value. Reasons: 1. Uncertainty about SPS (e.g. modulation, etc.). Common expectation is that the SPS will run until Additional costs of SPS (e.g. cross-compliance, administrative costs). 3. Taxes and fees imposed on transactions. 4. Credit market imperfections. 5. SPS capitalization in land values

54 Impact of SPS on land values SPS capitalization in land values more likely : when total number of allocated entitlements is larger than total eligible area, if new entrants are eligible for SPS entitlements, and with structural change (including with farm exit and decoupling) and with not fully tradable entitlements.

55 Impact of SPS on land values It appears that there is higher capitalization with hybrid than with historic model. Hybrid model Capitalization appears to be driven by low amount of naked land Need to take into account DP capitalization The hybrid model redistributed subsidies between farms, sectors, and regions which changes the relative price of different land types if SPS is capitalised in land values (price of some land types increases and for others decreases).

56 This could be the reason why the impact of the hybrid model appears to be stronger. Impact of SPS hybrid model is the most visible in marginal less fertile lands. clearest effect shows up in higher land values for low fertile lands (e.g. grassland). =>SPS appears to put a floor on land values (e.g. England, Sweden).

57 Landowners & SPS reform Landowners benefit with hybrid SPS model through two channels: 1. through SPS capitalization in land values (where none before). 2. through implementation specifics. Some non-farming landowners (tried to) obtain entitlements either by cancelling rental contract and hence applying themselves for entitlements, by adjusting rental contract which ensures that entitlements are returned to landowner after the rental contract expiration. => line in Health Check reform

58 Conclusions The entitlement market price is low mostly due to imperfect tradability and to certain extent also due to the SPS capitalization in land values. SPS has stronger impact on rental than on sale markets (but could be due to identification problem). It appears that hybrid model leads to stronger land capitalization. Hybrid model introduces some distortions. Landowners tend to benefit more with hybrid SPS model than with historical model. SPS has some effects on structural changes particularly on farm exit and farm credit.
