Economic impacts of manure policy on intensive livestock farms in the Flemish region (Belgium)

Economic impacts of manure policy on intensive livestock farms in the Flemish region (Belgium)

The environment and the management of agricultural resources Proceedings of the 24th Seminar of the European Association of Agricultural Economists EAAE, Viterbo, 24-26th January 1991: 156-166

A brief review of the manure problem, manure policy and legislation in the Flemish region of Belgium is given. Although abatement measures based on the Polluter-Pays Principle are of direct economic concern to the farm, little is known of farm level effects. In this paper a model is used to calculate and analyse farm level manure surpluses with respect to farm type and location over the period 1975-89.
