Contents Notes
Introduction -- The biological basis for benefit-cost assessment of pesticide use -- The economic evaluation of the benefits and costs of pesticide use -- The food, feed, and fiber production submodel -- The health effects submodel -- The environmental effects submodel -- Summary of the benefit-cost system procedures. In this report, the application of benefit-cost analysis in the registration of chemical pesticides is developed. A comprehensive benefit-cost system, designed to be used both in the registration of new pesticides, as well as in the re-registration of existing pesticides is described. It is a workable system, reflecting the current state-of-the-art using presently available data. It is designed to provide convenient, summary formats of the most prominent indicators of benefits and costs, especially those which are conceptually and empirically difficult to measure--such as long-term human health and indirect environmental effects--and formatted and depicted in the most comparable presentation possible.
