No 35513, 2005 Annual Meeting, February 5-9, 2005, Little Rock, Arkansas from Southern Agricultural Economics Association

Abstract: This study develops a comparable measure of pesticide risks. Based on revealed preference method an index system is developed for individual pesticides combining the information on different environmental and health risks. A data obtained from a survey of U.S. farmers has revealed that on average the adoption of Roundup Ready soybeans results in reduced toxicity of herbicides.
