Abstract

This paper reports the results of an economic analysis designed to estimate the interactions between pesticides and other inputs in arable farming systems. A model was used to investigate the likely effects of different levels of taxation on cropping patterns, pesticide use, output and gross margins. The results indicate that pesticide use is relatively unresponsive to tax levels and raises doubts about the efficacy of this approach as a means of reducing environmental damage.
