This paper presents a novel approach for generating information for regulatory and policy analysis, based on farmers' adoption of weed control technology. A simulation model, WISH, is used to generate cost and risk information on 258 weed control strategies. The environmental policies simulated are bans on triazines and broadcast application technology.
This paper was presented at the 1991 AAEA Annual Meeting, August 4–7, Manhattan, Kansas.
