Economic and health consequences of pesticide use in developing country agriculture



Economic and health consequences of pesticide use in developing country agriculture



American Journal of Agricultural Economics 76(3): 587-607



The first paper 'Pesticides and Philippine rice farmer health: a medical and economic analysis' by P.L. Pingali, C.B. Marquez and F.G. Palis (pp.587-592), reports the results of a study conducted on a random sample of 152 rice farming households in the Philippines over the period 1989-91 to identify the types of health impairments that may be attributed to long-term pesticide use and quantify the magnitude of the impairments relative to the level of pesticide use.
