Icône de l'outil pédagogique Applications of SEAMLESS-IF


Analyses with SEAMLESS-IF are done at the full range of scales (from farm to EU and global) and varying time horizons, whilst focusing on the most important issues emerging at each scale (Figure 4). Main issues are the environmental, economic and social consequences of implemented policies on agricultural and rural development and viability. SEAMLESS-IF, for example, may be applied for analysing the consequences of the Nitrate Directive for respectively representative arable and dairy farms in Belgium, for regions in Belgium, and for the EU as a whole, with respect to nitrate leaching, farm income and rural employment.
