Although the contribution of chemicals to increased agricultural production is generally recognized, the potentially hazardous side-effects of some of these chemicals are causing a reassessment of their use. For rational public-policy choices to be made, simultaneous account needs to be taken of the contribution of chemicals to agricultural productivity and their potential hazards to various forms of life. The purpose of this paper is to suggest utility analysis as a framework for structuring a systematic decision-making process to determine public policy in this area.
