The Effect Of Feedgrain Program Participation On Chemical Use


  • Ribaudo, Marc
  • Shoemaker, Robbin A.


Economic incentives created by the commodity programs are hypothesized to cause program participants to apply agrichemicals at greater rates than nonparticipants. Corn producers who participate in the USDA feedgrain program are shown to apply nitrogen, herbicides, and insecticides at statistically greater rates than those who do not participate.
