The Future of Agriculture in the European Union
Abstract: This report looks at the current situation concerning the future of agriculture in the EU. The information starts by describing the current state of agriculture and how there are many challenges facing it. It then details some of these challenges and how they can be addressed. Next, the research is about the future of agriculture in Europe and how investments can improve it for young farmers. The number of farmers under 35 has significantly decreased, and many European farmers are aged 55+. There are many reasons for this decline in young farmers, including changes in lifestyle choices and economic pressures within Europe. Some young people choose not to follow their parents into farming because it is seen as traditional or uncool. Others have difficulty finding suitable land or farms to buy at an affordable price; still, others struggle with a lack of access to funding or support from governments or banks. This situation may negatively affect food security in Europe because younger generations do not have enough knowledge about agriculture or farming techniques to keep up with technological advancements and innovations. He also states that younger generations will be forced out of agriculture altogether if current trends continue, declining quality products.
