Agrárgazdasági Könyvek NAIK Agrárgazdasági Kutatóintézet, Budapest. 107 p. ISBN 978-963-491-606-2

During the food processing phase, a wide range of wastes and by-products are produced, most of which are valuable biological materials, and their utilisation can therefore have many advantages in terms of environmental protection, sustainability and economy. Despite this, little attention is currently being paid to this area, and regulation often does not help their proper utilisation. During our research, more than 4000 questionnaires were sent to food companies in Hungary in 2018 and 175 replies...

Agrárgazdasági Könyvek NAIK Agrárgazdasági Kutatóintézet, Budapest. 115 p. ISBN 978-963-491-605-5

Az üvegházhatású gázok kibocsátásának csökkentése, illetve azok negatív hatásaihoz történő alkalmazkodás hiányában, a globális és regionális klímaszcenáriók előrejelzése alapján (amelyek jelentős szórást mutatnak) a mezőgazdasági termelés környezeti feltételeinek további romlása várható. Mindez jól megalapozott felkészülést tesz szükségessé az agrárágazat szereplői részéről. Ehhez szükséges számszerűsíteni a lehetséges beavatkozások következményxeit, azok hozamokra, költségekre és jövedelmezőségre...

Agrárgazdasági Könyvek Agrárgazdasági Kutató Intézet, Budapest. 178 p. ISBN 978-963-491-603-1

Considering the natural and economic circumstances, the extent of the open-field areas under irrigation in Hungary is far below its potential. The climatic conditions during the crop growing season are expected to be greatly affected by climate change. Both the frequency and severity of extreme weather events are predicted to increase. Drought will occur more and more often, and the intensity and distribution of precipitation will be less and less optimal for most arable crop production. While even...
