Agricultural policy and regional specialization. The effects of relative prices - the Norwegian case

, : Agricultural policy and regional specialization. The effects of relative prices - the Norwegian case. Melding Institutt for Landbruksokonomi, Norges Landbrukshogskole ( 60): v + 181pp.

Considerable regional specialization in Norwegian agriculture during the last 40 years has led to a decrease in animal production, particularly milk production, in the plains of south-eastern Norway, but a dramatic increase in cereal production. Livestock production is concentrated in Jaeren (south-west Norway) and in the valley and fjord areas. This change from milk to cereals has been achieved by raising the price of grain relative to that for milk.
