Abstract

The growing awareness of the influence of farming activity on the environment has ensured that agricultural economic analyses can no longer be limited to a single objective, such as maximisation of gross margin or profit, but mast take a number of parameters into consideration. In this regard, the aim of the Pisan agricultural economists, working on the MIRAAF promoted "Panda" project, is to find a methodology that limits as much as possible the subjectivity associated with an overall judgement on production systems characterised by multiple attributes. In particular, we propose the criterion of loss of gross margin (opportunity cost) suffered by farmers as a result of adopting more environmentally friendly techniques as an objective measure of the cost of an improved environmental.
