Abstract Damages caused to agriculture and horticulture by defensive measures could be reimbursed in various ways. Reimbursement could be by replacement at government expense, replacement in kind, or by financial compensation. Three systems were draughted for estimating damages in field cropping or pasturing: 1. The book-keeping method in which the financial surplus was calculated on the damaged farm and similar undamaged farms; 2. Immediate settlement based on an estimate of the surplus for the crop derived from data on this crop for 3 similar farms; 3. Fixed damages, which were an extreme simplification of method 1.

These systems were equally suitable for estimating compensation in land reallocations and in land acquisition for roads. The principle of damage estimates by calculating farm profits after excluding 'internal risks' was important for many studies on farm economics, especially studies on the financial consequences of changes in farming system.
