Description Using a national pesticide use survey in sorghum production, a market framework was used to derive the short-run welfare impacts to consumers, and producers (users and non-users) of the removal of pesticides registered for use on sorghum. It was projected that the loss of atrazine would have the largest overall impact, with an estimated loss of $266 million. Users of atrazine in the U.S. would be expected to lose $122 million with users of atrazine in Texas losing $42 million.
