    The development of multi-agent models for agriculture has allowed the inclusion of farm decision-making behaviour and interactions in the simulation of smaller agricultural regions.Important methodological impact for this has come in particular from scientists from Germany.Currently under construction, the SWISSland model claims to depict as realistically aspossible the 50,000 family farms comprising the whole of Swiss agriculture in all their heterogeneity as regards farm and cost structures as well as farm decision behaviours, with the aim of improving the simulation and forecasting of st

    The aims of our paper are to identify economic determinants of theon-farm cultivars diversity and to empirically characterize the farmers'diversification choices. We focus on the private decision making processinvolving the choice of rice cultivars and the corresponding allocation offarmland. For a specific crop, the choice of cultivars, and the resulting cultivars portfolio, involves the farmer comparing benefits and costs. Amongthe many costs involved, we focus on diversity's management costs.

    Agricultural land markets differ greatly from the textbook-case of perfect competition. This is why standard hedonic pricing techniques should be revised before applying this technique to this market. The objective of this paper is to determine (a) the deviation from the competitive market price of agricultural land in the Netherlands due to market power and the existence of an excess surplus and (b) the effect of bargaining power on the division of excess surplus between the eventual seller and the buyer in the market for agricultural land.

    With demographic change, many rural regions in Germany face the challenge to ensure anappropriate provision of basic services, also for the increasing share of immobile populationgroups. Among others, the growing number of old and very old people will increase thedemand for medical care. Although, on the whole health care in Germany is very good, insome rural areas its provision tends to be difficult. This paper presents findings of anempirical study on older people’s mobility options, obstacles that constrain the access tohealth care and related needs.

    This paper analyses the relationship between housing prices and suburban agriculture zones endowments using the hedonic price methods. We use spatially referenced housing and land-use date to capture the effect of rural amenities around the house location in the area of Angers (France). Results indicate that put higher value on diversified landscapes rather than on unified ones. The proximity to vegetables, grasslands and vineyards do not have a significant impact on house prices while the proximity to forests has a positive impact. This impact differs following the shape of the forest.

    This article analyses determinants for 2001 farmland rental prices from 4376 farms in Germany. We derive our regression equation from a spatial reaction function to allow for spatial transmission of rental prices. Results from a general spatial model show that a € 1 per hectare higher rental price in a farmer’s neighbourhood coincides with a € 0.57 higher rental price he has to pay. For policy evaluation we estimate the marginal incidence of regional EU per-hectare premiums.

    According to the concept of ecosystem services, agriculture not only provides commoditiesbut also cultural and regulating services. While it is easy to value commodity production bymarket prices, the valuation of cultural and regulating services is complex because of theirpublic good character. Non-parametric approaches such as the Data Envelopment Analysis(DEA) allow for estimating the contribution of agriculture to such services.
