THE CONCEPT OF THE RESEARCH INTO STRUCTURAL DETERMINANTS OF SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURAL INTENSIFICATION IN EUROPEAN UNION COUNTRIES
Languages of publication
The aim of the study is to present the issues of research on sustainable intensification of the agriculture, in the specific context of the European Union and to present research procedure for such study. Proposed framework is based on the use of Eurostat data, to conduct efficiency (DEA) and productivity (Malmquist TFP index) analysis, to estimate the sustainable intensification index. Further structural determinants of this process might be assessed by means of panel regression. On the basis of the literature review carried out, the study may be limited to testing the impact of concentration, specialisation and orientation of agricultural production. As control variables, those describing endogenous, exogenous and institutional conditions should be included in the study.
