Producer (user and non-user) impacts
|Issue Date: ||1996|
|Abstract: ||A national pesticide-use survey from sorghum producers and a survey of entomologists and weed scientists were used to determine the impacts of pesticide use on sorghum. A market framework was employed to derive the short-run welfare impacts to consumers and producers (users and non-users) of the removal of pesticides currently registered for use on sorghum. It was projected that the loss of atrazine, the most widely used pesticide in sorghum production, would have the largest overall impact, with an estimated total welfare loss between $58 and $65 million.|
