Abstract

This paper analyzes restrictions on agricultural chemicals in the United States and the EC under various farm commodity policy scenarios using a partial equilibrium simulation model. The model has three regions (United States, EC, rest of the world) and four commodities (wheat, maize, coarse grains, soybeans). Medium- and long-run impacts are derived. Given existing farm programs, U.S. landowners gain from chemical restrictions while EC landowners generally lose. Given bilateral elimination of farm programs, both U.S. and EC landowners gain from chemical restrictions. Bilateral farm program elimination without chemical restrictions induces a shift in chemical usage from the EC to the United States. Copyright 1992 by Oxford University Press.
