Appendix 8. Classification of IACS crops into the economic model (and erosion rate class)

Table 75 shows the descriptions of the IACS land use classes (and their associated erosion rate class) and how these have been classified for the economic model.

Table 75 Descriptions of the IACS classes (RED TEXT) and how we have classified them for erosion risk and for the economics tables.
