TechnoGIN technical coefficient generator

Acronym:

TechnoGIN

Liaise ownership:

no

Description:

TEchnoGIN calculates the required inputs (labout demand, fertiliser demand, biocide demand, water demand and the related costs) for given target yields in a crop rotation. The generated input-output and cost-benefit relationships for the main crop activities in a region are next used in an optimization model (e.g. (FSSIM) at the farm or regional level.

Policy areas:

Spatial Coverage:

Input variables:

target yields per crop type, main crop rotations per region, management per crop type

Output variables:

Financial benefits per crop rotation, costs per crop rotation, input use per crop rotation, nutrient cycling per crop rotaion
