The social, economic and environmental value of agricultural productivity in the EU

Global agriculture and rural development face manifold challenges. The study reveals how a more productive and resource efficient agriculture can mitigate these challenges and provide at the same time more food, feed, non-food crops, biodiversity, and natural habitats and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Based on scientific methods the authors present evidence of the benefits of productive agriculture compared to low input farming in the EU.
