The effects of risk based pesticide taxation in Denmark

How you design taxes is very important to receive the wanted effect. Since Denmark mostly uses surface water as drinking water, a wise use of pesticides in farming is needed. Dr Anders Branth Pedersen and his colleagues from the department of Environmental Science at Aarhus University have studied the effects of risk based pesticide taxation in Denmark.

In this seminar he presents some of the results from their studies. Some of the conclusions are that pesticide taxes and strict approval systems are needed. But Dr Anders Branth Pedersen also asks for better European pesticide indicators.

The seminar was held on March 4 at School of Business Economics and Law, University of Gothenburg.
