Note that the paper is written in Swedish.

In this paper the effects of regional support (compensation payments, arable grassland payments and the general payment to semi-natural grazing land) in Jönköping and Västerbotten counties are evaluated using the AgriPoliS simulation model. The support schemes are evaluated individually and in total in terms of the effects on structural change (farm structure, land use and production), farm profit and family income, an open and varied landscape, and conservation of biodiversity and cultural values in the agricultural landscape. The effects of the support schemes were found to be strongly additive.
