Completed research projects


  • Research at the Department of Farm Management covers three major fields of activity. The first field is the applied decision support for entrepreneurial organic farms focusing e.g. on special issues as intra-farm transfers and risk management, both for smaller family run farms as well as large farms.
  • The second field is the implementation of location theory and production theory into static, dynamic and spatial models to investigate future perspectives of farms and regions including economic aspects of nature conservation using Geographical Information Systems (GIS).
  • The third field of research deals with the role of farms in their economic, natural, and social environment including e.g. interdisciplinary valuation of multifunctional landscapes, horizontal co-operations and vertical co-operation along the supply chain.
