Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to analyze the interactions of the economic and ecological demands on agriculture for a farm in Germany with a whole farm modeling approach. Integration of agro-environmental indicators in the model framework enables a multiple goal optimization and the computation of trade-offs of indicators and economic returns of the farm. The estimated opportunity costs provide valuable hints on bottlenecks of the integration of environmental claims into agriculture and help to identify reasonable incentives for environmentally sound agriculture. Furthermore conflicts between conflicting goals can be integrated to find optimal pathways of sustainable agricultural development.
