FG 986/2: Strukturwandel im Agrarsektor II- Teilprojekt 01: Unternehmerisches Entscheidungsverhalten im Experiment (TP 01)

The rational calculus of farmers assumed in many agricultural economic models is unrealistic and non-predictive of their actual decision making. Understanding of structural change in agriculture thus can be improved via a realistic modeling of the decision making of agricultural entrepreneurs. Specifically, slow disinvestment, i.e., postponing farm exit, persistence of market structures, i.e., failure to reallocate land plots towards higher efficiency, and more generally characterizing the decision making of farmers are crucial for a better understanding of structural change and policy advice. We apply economic experiments to better understand such disinvestment choices, land markets with economies of scale and private opportunity costs, different auction and bargaining forms to improve allocation efficiency of land markets, and to generally characterize the decision making of farmers.
