Adjustment in British Farm Production
In order, inter alia, to predict organisational adjustments in British farming, following the United Kingdom’s accession to the European Community, a model of agricultural supply was developed at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne.1 Emphasis was placed on adjustments over the transition period to the end of 1978 at both micro (or individual farm) and macro (or aggregate) levels.
