Summary

The aim of this study is to predict diversity effects of agricultural policy reforms in which direct aid payments are disconnected from production, and compare the outcomes with effects of such a policy in which CAP support is coupled. The study employs the dynamic regional sector model of Finnish agriculture. The sector model predicts regional land use, stocking densities, pesticide application areas, and nutrient balances.
