More about this item
KeywordsAs methyl bromide (MB) is phased-out for complete banning for agricultural use; this research evaluates the relative economic efficiency of fumigant alternatives; in combination with mulching methods. Bell pepper production in Georgia was studied in particular because any fumigant system that works for it would also work for other commercial crops. This study employs stochastic dominance techniques to identify the most efficient and preferred production alternatives in terms of gross and net enterprise returns. Based on risk efficiency; mean returns and the decision-makerâ€™s risk aversion considerations; this analysis identified TELV-MS; TEL-MS; and PC250-MS as the most preferred and risk-efficient alternatives.; Crop Production/Industries;
