Economic and environmental implications of herbicide-tolerant corn and processing tomatoes



Economic and environmental implications of herbicide-tolerant corn and processing tomatoes



Journal of Soil and Water Conservation 47(5): 411-417



Changes in agrochemical inputs and production costs likely to result from the growing of herbicide-tolerant (HT) maize and tomatoes were analysed using secondary data on production practices and by consulting experts (agronomists, weed scientists and farm management analysts) in the production of these crops.
