The aim of this report is to describe the generic template of the Farm System Simulator FSSIM) designed to be applied for any farming systems across Europe for simulating farmer behaviour and assessing policy impacts. FSSIM is a bio-economic farm model which integrates biophysical processes, farm decision making and resource endowment. It consists of an agricultural management module (FSSIM-AM) and a mathematical programming model (FSSIM-MP). FSSIM-AM aims to identify current and alternative activities and to quantify their input output coefficients (both yields and environmental effects). FSSIM-MP seeks to describe the farmer’s behaviour given a set of biophysical, socio-economic and policy constraints and to predict his/her reactions under news technologies, policy and market changes.
