Dernière mise à jour le :26/01/2021


The annual work unit (AWU) is the unit of mesurement of the amount of human labour provided on each agricultural holding.

This unit is equivalent to the work of one person working full-time for one year.

A distinction is made between salaried AWUs (which may include the farmers themselves or members of their families), whether permanent or seasonal, and non-salaried AWUs. It may also include all family AWUs, which include both employed and self-employed holders and members of their families participating in work on the holding.
