Modern and globalized agricultural production, trade, markets and rural development are impacted by a multitude of variables. Among these are agricultural policies, weather shocks, climate change as well as new management options and technological innovations. All of these influence – to a more or lesser degree – the performance of individual farmers, regional agricultural sectors, value chains and the agronomic situation of a whole state or even the world at large. At the same time not only a growing world population and changing dietary preferences but also the emergence of new economic sectors, like the bio-economy, increase the need for further agricultural productivity growth.
Thus, the challenges for agricultural production and rural development are very diverse and need to be thoroughly analysed. Against this multifactorial background, we provide various consultancy services to evaluate the economic performance of different agricultural activities as well as the socio-economic effects of agricultural production and rural development scientifically on a broad scale.
