|Date / Time||

The governmental support of farms in European agriculture aims to ensure a decent standard of living for farmers and to ensure an environmental and animal friendly production. Income levels and income stability affect the well-being of farm families and contribute to rural development and farms’ ability to provide ecosystem services. However, changes in climatic, market and political conditions create new challenges. The seminar focusses on research related to the drivers, measurement and management of the distribution of farm incomes across time and space and other measures for well-being.
