Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 1993, vol. 25, issue 2, 10

Abstract: The economic viability of the Boll Weevil Eradication program in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia is assessed based on a five-year survey of producers. Results indicate the program increases yield 100 pounds per acre. This implies a 19 percent internal rate of return for producers over a ten year period.
