Agriculture costs money. Farmers must invest in machines, livestock and buildings if they want to be successful. Often, however, it is not entirely clear how much money should be put into which machines and buildings. Therein lies the danger, since the wrong decision can have decisive and fairly long-term economic consequences for the farm.
For this reason, our researchers are compiling decision-making bases which help farm managers to navigate their way through the jungle of options. By doing this, they reinforce competitiveness as well as the social and environmental compatibility of agriculture.
