Abstract

The type ofpest management strategy a farmer chooses is influenced by the amount of risk associated with alternative strategies. This paper examines the attractiveness of alternative pest management strategies used on a representative Virginia soybean farm. Probability distfibutions of net revenue associated with alternative pest control options are simulated and then compared using generalized stochastic dominance criteria. Results suggest risk-averse and, in some cases, risk-preferring farmers would prefer strategies which incorporate an integrated pest management approach to pest control rather than one which relies completely on chemical pest control.
