Abstract:

The use of pesticides to control agricultural pests both benefits farm production and imposes health and environmental costs on producers and society. This title, first published in 1988, includes an application of the author's methodology to tomato production, in which Antle illuminates the roles that alternative methods of pest management play in producer welfare. He also develops a more general empirical framework for studying producer welfare under uncertainty -- a framework in which production risk, sequential decision making, and attitudes toward risk are integrated. This title will be of interest to students of environmental studies.
