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 are assessing the many factors affecting grassland use change. These will be of important consequences for future funding programs.

Data already available from Statistik Austria und the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS) will be augmented with representative interviews of agricultural operations in all production areas Austrias. From these data trends are calculated for each region and contrasted with regions’ share of grassland habitats of high conservation vale. This can then inform regional development scenarios, which conclusions can be drawn from. This evaluation on behalf of the Ministry of Sustainability and Tourism will be completed by spring 2019.
