The project analysed barriers at target group level for an effective Danish pesticide policy. It was explored not only whether non-economic rationales affect farmer decisions regarding pesticide use but also how widespread non-economic values are compared to more economic values, and the implications for the Danish policy instruments were analysed. The analyses were e.g. based on a questionnaire with more than 1.100 responses. Participating institutions: Aarhus University and University of Copenhagen.
