FARMIS is a comparative-static programming model for farm groups based on information from the farm accountancy data network (FADN). It provides a detailed reproduction and projection of agricultural production activities at farm level. Competition of farms on important factor markets is modelled endogenously.
Mathematical programming model
Main field of application
Differentiated analysis of policy impacts on farms of different type, size, etc.
Sector-consistent modelling of policy impacts taking into account farm characteristics as well as ownership and prices of quotas and land for income assessments
Structural change currently projected exogenously; no single-farm projections; projection of new activities restricted
Analyses of CAP reforms (e. g Luxembourg Reform; sugar market reform, milk quota abolishment)

Farm accountancy data network (FADN). The current base year is based on accountancy information from national FADN of the farming years 2009/10, 2010/11 and 2011/12. The stratification by agricultural region, main farm type, farm size and management system provides 646 farm group models (of which 90 farm groups represent organic farming).
