A behavioural economic analysis of moral hazards in food production: the case of deviant economic behaviour and disclosure policies on the restaurant, ready-to-eat and retail level (Project)

Deviant behaviour on various levels of the food supply chain may cause food risks. It entails irregular technological procedures which cause (increased probabilities of) adverse outcomes for buyers and consumers. Besides technological hazards and hitherto unknown health threats, moral hazard and malpractice in food businesses represent an additional source of risk which can be termed “behavioural...

A combination of systems biology and experimental high-throughput approaches to engineer durable resistance against plant viruses in crops (Project)

To reach these goals, all information available for host virus interaction in barley, peach and tomato will be stored in a data bank and used to identify candidate genes. Besides this, new candidate genes will be identified by positional cloning in Arabidopsis and barley. Candidate genes will be tested and verified by complementation analyses, mutation analyses and screening for natural...

A detailed climate change risk assessment for European agriculture and food security, in collaboration with international projects (Project)

The FACCE Knowledge hub focuses on modeling European agriculture with climate change for food security. The objective is to improve the robustness of impact assessments and to derive better model integration including information on uncertainty, scaling and data processing. ZALF contributes to all three project themes: crop, livestock and trade modeling. Crop-M investigates cropland models...
