Th e research aims to analyze the farmers’ preferences towards the chemical input use in the case of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) being removed after 2013. Th e analysis is based on a survey of European farmers carried out in 2009. Th e intended responses of farmers to the CAP liberalization are analyzed by the logit model regressions. Although for the majority of respondents there would be no change in their intentions if the CAP were suppressed, about 20% would intend to decrease the amount of chemicals. Th e eff ects of the CAP liberalization appear not to be univocal and strongly case-specifi c, as it substantially diff ers across the European regions, farm locations and socio-economic structures.
