Abstract

Finland is situated within the same parallels of latitude as the southern parts of Greenland. Thus Finland can be regarded as one of the most northern agricul-tural countries in the world. Such a peripheral situation is interesting from the stand-point of global agricultural typology. How can the results of the Commission be applied to a region which greatly differs from the core areas of world agriculture?
