Indiana Farm-Level Impacts of Possible Environmental Protection Agency Bans on Selected Soybean Insecticides

  • Christopher M. Cashman (a1), Marshall A. Martin (a2) and Bruce A. McCarl (a2)

Extract

In spite of the economic benefits of insecticides to farmers and consumers, growing concern about the potential health and environmental hazards of some insecticides has resulted in the investigation of many insecticides by the Environmental Protection Agency (Boraiko). The use of several insecticides has already been banned. Others are under review and their use may be banned or restricted in the future.

The Environmental Protection Agency must evaluate, monitor, and regulate a wide range of chemical compounds. To do so requires the collection and analysis of information on the environmental, health, and economic impacts of the use of many diverse chemicals. Though regulatory action by the Environmental Protection Agency may reduce health and environmental risks, such action can also alter the profitability and performance of a farming operation.
