Global Burden of Crop Loss Workshop | Session 4: Calculating the economic burden of yield losses
- Technical discussion of how to calculate economic burden from yield loss caused by 1) biotic factors and 2) abiotic factors.
- Discuss key information and data needed to apportion the economic burden caused by yield loss to the farm, community, state, and national levels including both domestic and international markets
- Discuss how the “cost of control” to avoid pest-caused losses can be captured in economic burden
