Abstract for: Determination of Effective Policies for Ecological Agriculture Development with System Dynamics Case Study in Slovenia

In this paper the system dynamics model of organic farming development in order to support decision making is presented. The system incorporates relevant variables, which affect the development of the organic farming. The model seeks answers to strategic questions related to the level of organically utilized area, levels of production and crop selection in a long term dynamic context and will be used for simulation of different policy scenarios for organic farming and their impact on economic and environmental parameters of organic production at an aggregate level. Using the model several scenarios were performed.
