Health Costs And Externalities Of Pesticide Use In Locust And Grasshopper Control In The Sahel
AbstractTo evaluate the economic cost of classical chemical control of locusts, externalities of chemical pesticides in the Sahel are estimated through a farmer survey. The costs of human health, losses in domestic animals and of destroying obsolete pesticides are estimated at $4 per treated ha for chemical control.
