1. Komen, M.H.C. Agriculture and the environment: applied general equilibrium policy analyses for the Netherlands.

Degree: 2000, Agricultural University

There is a growing awareness of actual and potential threats to the natural environment in the form of the exhaustion of natural resources, the pollution of air, land and water resources, and the deterioration of bio-diversity. As in most industrialised countries, the concern for maintaining or improving environmental quality has taken a firm place on the policy agenda in the Netherlands. Hence, for policy makers and interest groups, it is important to understand the nature of different environmental problems, the linkages between the economy and the environment, and the economic and environmental consequences of government intervention. The Dutch economy, agriculture and environment are highly interrelated. Agriculture, industries that are directly related to agriculture (agribusiness) and international trade in agricultural and food products form a substantial part of Dutch economic activity. Moreover, agricultural production causes a number of specific environmental problems, primarily related to the use of industrial inputs like fertiliser and pesticides. In addition, agriculture also contributes to some general environmental problems like the greenhouse effect, acidification and eutrophication. Three relevant categories of policies can be distinguished that stress the changing policy environment of agriculture and the linkages that exist between the economy, the environment and agriculture: <ol>environmental policies that are specific for agriculture;general environmental policies that affect agriculture; andagricultural policies that entail environmental effects.</ol> In addition, the importance of environmental policies relatively to other policies in agriculture is increasing. Hence, there is scope for empirical analysis of Dutch agriculture and agribusiness, in order to unravel the qualitative and quantitative relation between the environment and economic activity. The purpose of this thesis is to quantify the economy-wide environmental and economic effects of agricultural and environmental policies and the interactions between these policies, in the Netherlands. Some of the most important policy issues are dealt with in this thesis. Policy simulations are: <ol>the manure policy;the introduction of a small-user energy tax;the reduction of emissions contributing to the environmental indicators eutrophication, the greenhouse effect, acidification and waste accumulation; andthe increase of milk quota under a nitrogen emission restriction.<ol> The basic tool used in this thesis is a static, single-country applied general equilibrium (AGE) model for the Dutch economy, in which environmental relations are incorporated explicitly. Given the linkages described and the economy-wide and trade effects that can be expected from agricultural and environmental policies, using an AGE for a small open economy is appropriate. Moreover, the availability of new environmental data at a very disaggregated level for the Netherlands makes… Advisors/Committee Members: A.J. Oskam, J.H.M. Peerlings.

2. Boots, M. Micro-economic analysis of alternative policies for Dutch dairy farming.

Degree: 1999, Agricultural University

The dairy sector is to a large extent influenced and restricted by environmental and agricultural policies. These policies are often very detailed in nature and oriented at the farm level. That is, policy measures and regulations, such as taxes and support payments often depend on local farm circumstances and farm management. Dairy farmers constantly face minor and major policy changes, causing farm-specific uncertainties and adjustments in production. This thesis aims to quantify the effects of specific policies on production decisions and profit of individual Dutch dairy farms. Thus, the individual behaviour of dairy farmers in response to policy changes is the main focus here. An empirical economic model of the production behaviour of dairy farming is developed and applied to determine the effects of policy changes. It is assumed that farmers react differently on policy changes, especially because policies become increasingly farm-specific. The empirical micro-economic model presented in this thesis is a flexible tool to show short-term behaviour of individual Dutch dairy farms in response to policy changes. The approach of combining historical information on production technology and production behaviour with information on future or new policy measures is suitable for analysing policy effects at the farm level. The supply constraint, enforced by the milk quota regime, combined with the price support and border protection measures, play a central role in dairy policy. The efficiency of milk quota trade and the effects of distortions in quota trade are analysed. The alternative EU policies analysed in this thesis are a two-tier milk price system, quota abolition, and the Agenda 2000 reform, which include quota increases, price cuts and compensating premiums. Moreover, the effects of phosphate surplus taxes, especially in relation to the demand for farmland, are investigated. Distortions in quota trade are caused by limits on the amount of quota that can be traded according to the regulations. Costs related to transaction services by a middleman or a notary are less visible. Both types of trade distortions are simulated and compared with unconstrained quota trade. Efficiency gains can be obtained if restrictions on milk quota trade are removed. However, the trade restrictions protect small farms because they gain more from quota trade than large farms. In a two-tier milk price system with free quota trade, B-milk will be produced if the world market price is higher than the industries' average marginal costs of producing A-milk. The most efficient farmers will produce B-milk instead of buying A-quota. The Agenda 2000 reform for dairy farming results in a loss in profits, which is mainly due to the decrease in milk prices. The proposed direct payment per tonne of initial quota only compensates 52 per cent of this profit loss. If quotas were abolished, milk production increases if the price of milk is higher than the current average marginal costs. However, profits decrease, asking for… Advisors/Committee Members: A.J.
