AN EVALUATION OF INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT WITH HETEROGENEOUS PARTICIPATION

Principal component analysis in employed to develop indices that distinguish between participants and nonparticipants in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs. Results of incorporating these indices into yield, net return, and production cost functions for cotton producers indicate that both yield and costs increase as the degree of producer participation in IPM increases. Although these results are inconsistent with previous research, they are consistent with the theoretical relationship between IPM and conventional input usage.
