Abstract

The problem of pesticide application under increasing pesticide resistance is explored. A theoretical model is developed to determine optimal pesticide use. This allocation is compared to the laissez-faire solution and to the centralized solution with incomplete information about pesticide resistance. The methodology is then applied in a case study on the Egyptian alfalfa weevil in California.
