The future development of agricultural land use in the Netherlands

Mededelingen, Landbouw Economisch Instituut, Netherlands (352): 65

The future development of agricultural land use in the Netherlands

Two exploratory studies were done at the request of the Dutch Planning Service into the future development of agricultural land use in the Netherlands. The first discusses the long-term development of production, land use and land productivity in European and Dutch agriculture. A quantitative estimate follows of agricultural land use up to 2025. An appendix discusses the development of cultivated land in the Netherlands since 1946.
