Description

This is a survey of farming households in three different areas of Sweden. Swedish agriculture is presently undergoing a radical reorganization. Regulation systems are dismantled and free markets are established. The technical development, as well as the environmental problems, makes the future uncertain. The reorganization of agriculture brings about big changes for the individual farmer, and their work and living conditions are changed considerably. The project was financed by the Swedish Council for Forestry and Agricultural Research, the Swedish Council for Building Research, the Swedish Work and Environment Fund and the Swedish Farmers´ Foundation for Agricultural Research.
