Im doing research for an university assignment. The topic is "economic implications on agriculture due to air pollution".
My question is:
Are there any statistics or articles which show that air pollution affected the vegetation adversely or caused harvest losses?

The EEA does not do any work on this issue at the moment. We have found some links to literature about ozone impacts on crop production from other sources (“economic damage ozone harvest”), e.g.:
Global crop yield reductions:[…]/S1352231010010137 or
It might need a bit more detailed research to find similar studies for other pollutants e.g. NOx, NHy or SOx etc.
For Europe, checking the reports on the websites of ICP forest, ICP vegetation and ICP Integrated Monitoring may also help.
Another potential source of information could be IIASA (
Hope this helps.
Kind regards.
