MANAGING PEST RESISTANCE: THE POTENTIAL OF CROP ROTATIONS AND SHREDDING

Bruce Babcock () and Silvia Secchi ()

No 21597, 1999 Annual meeting, August 8-11, Nashville, TN from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: The current debate over resistance management plans mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency for transgenic crops ignores management practices that are complementary to refuge schemes. A dynamic production model is developed that measures the costs and benefits of crop rotation and shredding in terms of delaying resistance to Bt corn.
