Georgia Cotton Acreage Response to the Boll Weevil Eradication Program

Camille M. Tribble, Christopher McIntosh and Michael E. Wetzstein

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 1999, vol. 31, issue 3, 499-506

Abstract: An adaptive regression model is employed for estimating pre- and post-boll weevil eradication cotton-acreage response. Results indicate cotton acreage becoming more inelastic to own- and cross-price changes. As a result of this shift in acreage response and yield increases from eradication, net producer benefits on average are $88.73 per acre.
