Our article “Randomised Controlled Trials for the Evaluation of the CAP: Empirical Evidence about Acceptance by Farmers” has been published in the latest issue of the “German Journal of Agricultural Economics”. We discuss how a Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT) could be used to evaluate agri-environment-climate measures of the CAP. Our empirical results are based on a survey among Austrian farmers who have participated in the measure “Refrain from Silage”.
the deadline for submitting manuscripts to the Austrian Journal of Agricultural Economics and Rural Studies is on 31 October 2018. It is possible to submit manuscripts based on research presented at the ÖGA annual conference or research not related to the annual conference.
