Understanding spatial interactions and structural change in the dairy production chain with a dynamic regional Agent Based Model covering dairy farms and dairy processing


The central hypotheses to be investigated in this research project is that farm structural change in the German dairy sector is the outcome of the interaction between processes at the farm and processing level and that an improved understanding of these processes can be reached by the application of Agent Based Modelling (ABM), which allows to explicitly depict spatial interactions.
