Europe helps farmers to use less pesticide for sustainable agriculture

European farmers should adopt integrated pest management from 2014. Indeed, applying the principles of integrated pest management and organic farming should lead to a more sustainable agriculture with less pesticide. Lefebvre et al. designed a framework to understand what incentives encourage farmers to adopt integrated pest management. Their findings help to understand farmer reaction to policy incentives. Results also show how should public money be used to favour sustainable agriculture.
