Title Agricultural structure
Alternate Title Change in Used Agricultural Area [35]
Publication Date 2008-04-30
Abstract In recent decades, mountain agriculture has lost much of its significance. The main reasons for this are unfavourable conditions such as a shortened vegetation period and difficult terrain with steep slopes and small arable plots, which incur higher production costs. Mountain agriculture can therefore not compete in national and international markets. Thus, from the 1950s onwards, marginal land with low yields has successively been taken out of agricultural use.
