Abstract

In the past few decades there has been an increasing awareness concerning damage inflicted on the environment by economic activities. Thus decision-making procedures have been developed which are capable of taking into account the externalities resulting from human activities including agriculture. It is, however, very difficult to make an objective evaluation of externalities. The Authors propose a method, based on linear programming, which aims at isolating and limiting the subjectivity of evaluation, and provides a series of alternatives minimising chemical input. So a set of Pareto-efficient solutions rater than a subjective optimal one is provided for each gross margin level. The Authors subsequentely attempt to identify the best Pareto-efficient solution.
