Methodological aspects of quantitative tools and databases
A high quality and availability of data on agricultural commodities are a precondition for quantitative analysis. However, existing databases reveal sometimes a lack of consistency and timely availability of data. To this end, a project on the potentials of a harmonisation of databases has been carried out.
An ongoing activity is the construction of disaggregated agricultural SAMs at EU Member States level.
Furthermore research is carried out on the linking of economic modelling at farm and market levels
