The European horticultural sector faces changes in its market environment, such as changes in trade regulations, concentration in the chain-, and environmental concerns. These issues may individually affect the future economic and environmental performance of horticulture. The objective of the present paper is to review partial equilibrium models in terms of their ability to cope with the aforementioned aspects of the horticultural sector. We found that changes in trade regulations are already modelled in a detailed way in horticultural partial equilibrium models. However, chain concentration and environmental concerns are addressed to a much lesser extent in the currently available models
