Abstract
A regional survey of New England was initiated to determine the economic losses to the agricultural industry from injury caused by air pollutants. Eighty-three investigations were made in 40 countries of the six New England states. Direct air pollution injury was observed in 14 countries and accounted for 29 of the reports. Greatest economic losses were observed on vegetables and agronomic crops as well as on flowers and foliage plants. Direct economic losses were estimated to be approximately $1.1 million for the 1971-72 season. As some incidents were not reported during the survey, continuing annual losses are estimated to be approximately $1.5 million. (Author)
