We examined four evolution paths of the biofuel sector using a partial equilibrium world agricultural sector model in CARD that
includes the new RFS in the 2007 EISA, a two-way relationship between fossil energy and biofuel markets, and a new trend
toward corn oil extraction in ethanol plants. At one extreme, one scenario eliminates all support to the biofuel sector when the
energy price is low, while the other extreme assumes no distribution bottleneck in ethanol demand growth when the energy price
is high. The third scenario considers a pure market force driving ethanol demand growth because of the high energy price, while
the last is a policy-induced shock with removal of the biofuel tax credit when the energy price is high. Standard results hold

Agricultural land use does not only concern farmers, but is of high relevance for the environment. Agri-environmental
programmes aim to foster the environmental soundness of agricultural production. The aim of this study is to analyse the impact
of agri-environmental programmes on the economic and the environmental performance of farms. Using the nonparametric
method of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA), we calculated the economic as well as the environmental efficiencies of farms and
examined whether farms are able to succeed in combining environmental and economic efficiency. As study object serves a South
German agri-environmental programme, the Bavarian KULAP. A farm survey was conducted covering a total of 102 farmers. The
results show that farmers who...
