Estimating the Effects of Pesticide Use on Burley and Flue-Cured Tobacco

  • George W. Norton (a1) and G. Andrew Bernat (a1)


The only pesticides a farmer may use on his crops are those that are registered for such use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Registration of a particular pesticide can be withdrawn or partially restricted if the EPA determines that the risk to society outweighs the benefits of continued unrestricted use.
