Multiproduct Production Choices And Pesticide Regulation In Georgia


  • McIntosh, Christopher S.
  • Williams, Albert A.


An increasing emphasis on surface and groundwater quality and food safety may result in some form of pesticide regulations. A restricted profit function model of Georgia agriculture is used to examine the short-run effects of 2 and 5 percent reductions in all pesticides. Point estimates of short-run impacts, along with their 90 percent confidence intervals are presented.
