AGRIBALYSE agricultural database

AGRIBALYSE v1.3 is a French agricultural database for background LCIs, food LCA and benchmarking in the food sector. It comprises the most common French agricultural products and a few imported ones, with production data from 2005 to 2009.

The development program is ongoing, and more updates will follow.
