WP6: An Economic Assessment of Sustainable and Profitable Legume Production and Consumption

Lead Partner: Scotland's Rural College


This work package aims to determine the economic performance of legumes at the Farm-, Farm Network (regional), and EU levels in conventional and organic production systems. Data from Case Studies will be used to derive economic and trade indicators at a range of spatial scales for comparison with Sustainability Indicators (WP8) to give an overall appraisal of the potential for legume-based systems.

Objectives

Task 6.1

Explain distribution of legumes across EU and farm level modelling

 

 

Task 6.2

To analyse farmer behaviour in relation to the uptake of sustainable legume production

 

Task 6.3

To assess the uptake of sustainable and profitable legume at production and consumption level on sector competitiveness and trade, including risk assessments

Deliverables
