Challenges for Flemish agriculture and horticulture

The seventh edition of the Flemish Agriculture Report (LARA) was published in 2018.

The report deals with the challenges for Flemish agriculture and horticulture. At the same time, it provides a detailed description of the subsectors. A SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) also takes place per subsector. Between the chapters, experts from policy, research and civil society give their vision on challenges faced by Flemish agriculture and how the sector should deal with them.

This is a translation of the summary of the report.

You’ll find the entire report in Dutch on our website.
