agricultural economics, agrieconomics, or agroeconomics


Explanation:
The literal translation is "agricultural economics." The other two terms have not entered the major dictionaries or spell checkers, but they are commonly used. They are quite handy when what you need is an adjective, where "agrieconomic" and "agroeconomic" work much better than the two-word version. Here are a couple of citations showing how these contracted forms have been used:

http://www.the-scientist.com/yr1994/mar/prof_940321.html

"Profile:

Book Publishing Jobs Offer Scientists Flexibility, Security
By Ricki Lewis:

Date: March 21, 1994, pp.21

After a year with Macmillan, she had developed a distinguished list, focusing on agrieconomics and microbiology."


http://www.agric.wa.gov.au/progserv/market/agromodels/browse...

"The Online Database of Agrieconomic models

Combination:

These models combine a number of strategies to provide a more holistic approach to farm agroeconomics."


It is noteworthy that agribusiness and agrieconomics are not synonymous. The term "agribusiness" is a well-established term that can be found in major dictionaries (such as the American Heritage Dictionary) and is recognized by major spell checkers, but it means something different (despite some obvious overlap).
