The study is composed of two parts: at first we briefly discuss some questions of modelling the food and agriculture system over the long run, illustrating them with concrete model examples. The questions are: population and economic development; technological change and investments; environment and agricultural production; and international relationships.

The second part contains short notes about the 43 models which have built the base of the study. The notes give information about the models' main characteristics, structure and applicability.

A bibliography is also enclosed listing references of papers and books which although not incorporated in this study may nevertheless be of interest to agricultural modellers.
