THE IMPACT OF UNCERTAINTY ON PESTICIDE APPLICATION

Gershon Feder

No 284012, 1976 Annual Meeting, August 15-18, State College, Pennsylvania from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Uncertainty is introduced into several components of a simple pest management model. It is shown that risk aversion leads to higher quantities of pesticides and to a decline in economic thresholds, implying higher frequency of applications. The reduction of uncertainty via better dissemination of information is thus recommended.
