Research areas of the Production Economics group

The production economics group mainly works quantitatively on farm- and firm-level decisions, in particular on dis-investment decisions to analyse structural change in agriculture using microeconometric methods, farmland market analysis, land auction analysis, impact evaluation of policies and practices that target at improving ecological outcomes and farm animal welfare of food production and measurement of firm-specific efficiency under risk. Thereby the group relies on methods for ecological and economic efficiency analysis (eco-efficiency).
