In order to understand why French farmers still prefer to use pesticides rather than alternative agronomic solutions, despite the effectiveness of the latter when it comes to crop protection, IFPEN and INRAE conducted a survey of around one hundred farmers using a discrete choice experiment method. The results obtained revealed their reticence and their motivations. They will be useful in informing public decision-making and the design of incentive instruments.
