Economic analyses of measures to control phosphorus run-off from non-point agricultural sources



Economic analyses of measures to control phosphorus run-off from non-point agricultural sources



European Review of Agricultural Economics 20(4): 399-418



Economic analyses are made of nine measures against phosphorus run-off from non-point agricultural sources. The farm economic analyses cover the effects of the control measures on profitability, whereas the socioeconomic analyses examine the cost-effectiveness of reducing algae-accessible phosphorus. In both types of analysis the uncertainty is quantified by Monte Carlo simulation. Planned fertilizing and a tax on phosphorus are recommended as steps to be taken nationwide.
