Regulation of farmland use in water supply areas

, : Regulation of farmland use in water supply areas. Rapport Statens Jordbrugsokonomiske Institut ( 79): 114pp.

In Denmark the supply of drinking water derives mainly from wells in farmland areas. Leaching from the use of nitrogen fertilizers in agriculture can therefore threaten the quality of drinking water. Regulatory intervention is necessary to prevent unacceptable levels of nitrogen leaching, but such intervention will inevitably result in economic losses to society and to farmers. These losses must be minimized.
