The Value of Insecticides in U.S. Crop Production is the third in a series of pesticide benefit studies conducted by CPRI staff and funded by CropLife America and its member companies to quantify and communicate the underlying reasons for and benefits of agricultural pesticide use. The study examines plantĀ  feeding insects infesting 50 crops grown in the United States. Through a crop-based case study approach, the study discusses production practices and insect pressure, estimates use and potential losses to insects, and quantifies the impact of chemical insect control on crop production and farm income.
