In this paper the results of the investigation of the present state and issues related to agricultural data exchange and data integration, made in the EU research project agriXchange, are reported. The investigation employed experts in EU member states and Switzerland to inquire quantitatively and qualitatively about agricultural data exchange in the EU. For each country, separate reports were prepared and analysed. Special attention was given to different integration levels, within as well as between enterprises. The results based on the analysis of country reports showed big differences between different countries in EU in terms of level of data integration and standardization. The findings establish the importance, highlight the shortfalls and opens up discussions on frameworks for establishing a system for common data exchange in the agricultural sector.
