European Land Use And Resources: An Analysis Of Future EEC Demands☆
Published 1987 · Economics
Abstract This article examines the role of grassland and arable enterprises in Europe and evaluates the land base of the EEC-10 region for these enterprises. Land evaluation is especially important in the context of future land use developments and helps also in focusing on comparative advantage in agriculture. The article examines land use development in Europe with special reference to land use change, fertilizer use trends and crop and animal productivity. In addition prospective demands for land for the major uses are examined through an assessment of commodity demand projections. Based on these projections a land use scenario for 2000 is postulated for the EEC area.
