The arable crops regime and the countryside implications.

The environmental outcome of the 1992 CAP reforms is assessed. Focus is on the impact of the 1992 arable reforms on the UK countryside, placed in the broader context of the experience of other countries where possible. The British case study draws on several sources, including two surveys of farmers' responses to the reforms. The first survey covered the period 1992 to 1995 and was based on interviews taken with 575 farmers during 1995 and 1996. The interviews focused on farm management responses to the 1992 CAP commodity reforms concentrating on the dairy, beef, sheep and arable sectors. The second survey was based on interviews in 1997 with 575 arable farmers in England and Wales. It is concluded that the Arable Area Payments Scheme did not, in the short term at least, lead to a substantial reduction in cereal and other crop prices in the UK. Consequently there was not an extensification of production methods in the arable section and so there was little or no environmental gain from reduced inputs or arable reversion.
