Evaluation of Grassland Development

Meadows and pastures are characteristic elements of the Austrian cultivated landscape, lending it uniqueness and charm. However, grassland use has changed in recent time, a trend that is showing no sign of stopping. By evaluating grassland development, we have assessed the various factors influencing changes in use in order to draw conclusions for future funding programmes.

Existing data from Statistik Austria und the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS) were analysed. In addition, we conducted a representative survey of agricultural enterprises in all small production areas in Austria. Trends for the individual regions were derived from the data and compared with the proportion of valuable grassland biotopes. From this, scenarios for the different regions were developed and concrete conclusions were drawn. The evaluation was compiled on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism.
