Pesticide use in tomato production: Consumer concerns and willingness-to-pay
Consumer attitudes toward pesticide use and residues in fresh produce and tomatoes were assessed using personal interviews of shoppers in produce sections of retail grocery stores. The results indicated a lower frequency of concern for pesticide use than earlier studies and a belief in both personal and external effects of pesticide use indicating altruism may affect consumer purchases. Almost half of the respondents indicated a willingness-to-accept cosmetic defects in chemical pesticide residue-free (CPRF) tomatoes. The majority of respondents indicated willingness-to-pay up to 10% more for CPRF tomatoes.
