Framework - Case Study Design for a Risk Benefit Analysis of Pesticides in the Special Review Process -- Draft Final Report for 1985
This report summarizes work undertaken under a cooperative agreement with the same name during 1995. The work falls into three categories involving developing methods for:
- (1) Estimating the benefits of pesticide use (Section 2),
(2) Estimating pesticide productivity (Section 3), and
(3) Evaluating the impacts of framworker safety regulations (Section 4).
- (a) A conceptual framework for incorporating the impact of agricultural policies on the welfare effects of pesticide regulation, applied to several major crops (Section 2B),
(b) Refinements of the methodology for obtaining estimates of the regional welfare economic impacts of pesticide regulations, applied to regulations affecting the U.S. cotton industry (Section 2C).
Work under area (3) involved developing a framework for assessing the tradeoff between growers' revenue losses and the risk of organophosphate poisoning inherent in re-entry regulation of organophosphate use on apples in Washington, California, and Michigan.
