Public-goods oriented agricultural business models with higher awareness


The concept of our paper is based on the recognition, that environment safety and food safety is jointly influenced by the farming system and intensity of farming on the basis of given conditions. Therefore, the complete agricultural system and structure needs remodelling in order to create a management that is based on the sensitivity, stress-counteracting ability, production potential of the environment; where the ‘other’ (environmental, regional, labour, social and cultural) functions of agriculture are also highlighted and counted upon. In our paper, first, we show the essential characteristics of different farming systems. Then, the problems of food safety and stepwise establishment of a public goods oriented food-safety management system model is presented. Finally, for the better evaluation of environment safety our proposed ‘green point’ system model is also shown in the paper.
