The 14th EAAE Congress intends to take stock of the insights of scholars into Agri-Food and Rural Innovations for Healthier Societies issues in all areas of agricultural, food and rural economics. This is a next video presentation of seven Congress plenary themes. Prof. Chambers gives an overview of different modelling approaches to incorporating by products in agricultural production models and to determining shadow pricing for undesireable outputs.
