SUCCESSION STATUS OF FAMILY FARMS IN THE MEDITERRANEAN REGION OF SLOVENIA
Languages of publication
Family farm succession is a complex process in which the farm family plans the transfer of knowledge, labour, skills, management and ownership of the farm business from the parental to the next generation. By developing a multi-attribute decision model, 40 family farms from the Mediterranean region of Slovenia were evaluated regarding their succession status in order to relate two issues: family farm succession and multi-attribute decision modelling. The multi-attribute decision model was developed by using the DEX method, an expert system shell for multi-attribute decision modelling and support. The family farms’ data, applied to the model, is a part of the study where the standardized questionnaire was used. The results show that the majority of farms have good possibilities for a “smooth” succession process and future survival.
