Abstract

This behavioural experiment with farmers assessed the effect of two policy features of the new green architecture of the EU common agricultural policy on the adoption of environmentally friendly practices: (1) increasing mandatory adoption and (2) shifting budget to voluntary schemes. Results shed light on behavioural patterns, highlighting potential trade-offs between mandatory and voluntary schemes to increase agriculture’s environmental and climate performance.
