This paper undertakes an assessment of the impact of implementing the European economic model of a representative farm developed in Rygnestad and Fraser (1996) is Commission's Agenda 2000 cereal proposals for specialist wheatgrowers in Denmark. The extended to include a model of nitrate leaching and then used to simulate the impact of implementing the proposals. The results of this simulation are compared and contrasted with those of the sectoral and regional impact studies reported in European Commission (1998b). In particular the proposals are shown to have an environmentally-beneficial effect in terms of reduced nitrate leaching, with the magnitude of this effect dependent bath on the quality of land and on the ne ante set-aside rate.
