Abstract: Agriculture contributes approximately 10 percent to the emission of greenhouse gases in Austria. Therefore, it is important to evaluate the long-term development of the sector in order to assess whether Austria is achieving its emission targets. In three scenarios, adaptation paths of Austrian agriculture to changed price developments and political framework conditions up to 2050 are examined. The reduction of arable land observed so far was continued in the scenarios. The results show sustained production incentives for milk production. Contrary to recent observations, the results indicate a reduction in poultry meat production. In arable farming, maize production will increase, mainly due to the assumed productivity gains.
