Economics and Technology

Practitioners and policy-makers need a foundation of scientifically supported decision-making in order to further develop the agriculture and food sector. The Swiss Farm Accountancy Data Network highlights the economic situation of Swiss farms on an annual basis. In addition to this, Agroscope provides answers to socioeconomic questions. It also develops and tests innovative technologies for practitioners.
