Methodological Approach for Evaluation ff Investment Behavior of Farmers in Different Development Scenarios
Methodological instruments are presented for analysis of the impact of the Common agricultural policy (CAP) on investment behavior of farms for a long-term period based on the direct payments for a unit of area. To achieve the set aim a methodology is proposed which will be used to conduct an ex-ante analysis of investment behavior of farmers towards unfavorable rural areas which are grouped in several types of farms. Scenarios are developed to measure the impact of the CAP on investment behavior of producers in Bulgarian agriculture. The analysis of farmers’ investment behavior and the evaluation of the impact of different CAP scenarios will assist for revealing the relations between the goals of the policy and the behavior of farmers.
