GEORGIA COTTON ACREAGE RESPONSE TO THE BOLL WEEVIL ERADICATION PROGRAM

An adaptive regression model is employed for estimating pre-and post-boll weevil eradication cotton-acreage response. Results indicate cotton acreage becoming more inelastic to own- and cross-price changes. As a result of this shift in acreage response and yield increases from eradication, net producer benefits on average are $88.73 per acre.
