The Development of an Organic Agriculture Model: A System Dynamics Approach to Support Decision-Making Processes
This article describes the problem state of organic farming development and procedures for modeling by the means of system dynamics, with emphasis on the organic products market. The modeling principles are described in the following steps: problem state formulation, development of causal loop diagrams, model development, scenario analysis and formulation of acceptable strategies. Basic structures developed by the system dynamics principle are presented. The concept of archetypes in the field of organic agriculture modeling is described. The simulation scenarios are formulated as a case study for the Slovenian organic agriculture.
