Abstract A European Union (EU) wide pesticide tax scheme is among the future plans of EUpolicy makers. This study examines the information needs for applying an optimal pesticidepolicy framework at the EU level. Damage control specification studies, empirical results from pesticide demand elasticity, issues on pesticide risk valuation and uncertainty, and knowledge on the indirect effects of pesticides in relation to current pesticidepolicies are analysed. Knowledge gaps based on reviewing this information are identified and an illustration is provided of the direction future pesticidepolicies should take.
