Abstract:

In the actual agricultural economic environment the probability that the margins on the farms will be squeezed is fairly high. This environment is not only defined by the EEC policy, but also the impact of international factors is evident : for example, the dollar value, agricultural policies in other countries, (US Farm Bill), crop production in importing country, etc. What the farmers behaviour will be in this changed farm economic context, is an interesting subject for discussion and in-depth study. A detailed analysis of farmers reactions in similar situations provides useful information.
