Abstract
The report lists the expected insect control costs and insecticide use per acre for each insect control method on corn and cotton in each region discussed in Alternatives for Reducing Insecticides on Cotton and Corn: Economic and Environmental Impact. All the runs used in the linear programming model analysis are listed. The model was used to evaluate the effect of the insect control strategies as defined under various assumptions regarding inter-regional shifts in cotton acreage and level of grain exports.
