 Quick Bibliography Series 
 Bibliographies in the Quick Bibliography series of the
 National Agricultural Library (NAL), are intended primarily for
 current awareness, and as the title of the series implies, are
 not in-depth and exhaustive. However, the citations are a substantial resource
 for recent investigations on a given topic.  They also serve the purpose of
 bringing the literature of agriculture to the interested user who, in many
 cases, could not access it by any other means.  The bibliographies are derived
 from online searches of the AGRICOLA database.  Timeliness of topic and
 evidence of extensive interest are the selection criteria.  Send suggestions
 for Quick Bibliography on water-related topics to wqic@nalusda.gov
 
 The author/searcher determines the purpose, length, and search
 strategy of the Quick Bibliography.  Information regarding
 these is available from the author/searcher. The inclusion or omission of a
 particular publication or citation should not be construed as endorsement or
 disapproval. An author and subject index is provided along with the search
 strategy.
 
 PLEASE NOTE:  Information on document delivery services,interlibrary loan
 requests and copyright restrictions is appended to this bibiiography.  If Quick
 Bibliography files are copied and/or distributed, please include this

 Abstract:  Reviews of historical and organizational literature provide the
 backdrop for a general discussion of citizen input into land-grant
 universities and for a specific case study the Citizens Advisory/Oversight
 Council of the Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems (CIAS) at the
 University of Wisconsin-Madison. This strong citizens' council, established in
 1989, took its form in response to institutionally structured fears among
 university personnel, on one hand, and farmers and citizen groups on the
 other. Each group's recognition that the other's concerns were legitimate led
 to an acceptable resolution. We describe the principal characteristics of the
 resulting successful CIAS Council that is composed of farmers and
 representatives of the state's environmental community. Such councils
 facilitate new approaches to integrating the craft and science of farming, and
 for linking the production side of agricultural systems with policy issues.

 Abstract:  The apparent conflict between what is scientifically known and what
 is perceived concerning food acceptability by consumers provides an
 interesting paradox. Some of the leading international contributions concerned
 with organic farming system food products are thus reviewed in the light of
 consumer beliefs and attitudes. It is concluded that, in a market economy,
 consumer opinion will gradually prevail and that agricultural farming systems
 will have to adjust to more extensive lower input farming approaches.

 management; Consumer attitudes; Consumer information; Surveys; Demography;
 Perception; Risk
 
 Abstract:  Risk communication theory is used to address consumer concerns
 about food safety and pesticide residues. Risk perception is a function of
 actual hazard and "outrage" factors. If concerns are acknowledged and
 information is provided on how risks are being addressed, the outrage
 component of perception is reduced. Two 2-min videos were prepared to present
 information on the environmentally, responsive integrated management (IPM)
 approach to farming. The video was shown to a total of 197 consumers in
 controlled group settings. Although about 90% of participants expressed
 confidence in the safety of produce grown in California and the United States,
 40% said they avoided some produce items due to safety concerns. Pre- and
 post-attitude assessments and group discussions documented a significant
 change in attitudes toward food safety, farming practices, and university
 efforts to help farmers. This project indicates that consumer concerns are
 significantly reduced when their knowledge of IPM practices is increased.

 Abstract:  A survey of farm families in five states was conducted to determine
 attitudes and practices regarding pesticide application and protective
 clothing. Specific objectives included determining relationships among actual
 risk factors, perceived risk, and precautionary activities as well as
 identifying practices that needed modification in order to reduce risks
 associated with use of pesticides. Some analyses suggested a positive
 relationship between actual and perceived risk measures whereas others did
 not. For example, the two states reporting the highest use of more toxic
 chemicals and greatest incidence of health problems related to pesticide
 application also accounted for the highest average ratings on the overall
 perceived health risk scale. On the other hand, the majority of growers in
 each state assumed that common work clothing protected them from dermal
 exposure regardless of the formulation or application method they were using.
 Although most growers reported following recommended practices such as wearing
 gloves during pesticide application and storing pesticide soiled clothing
 separate from other laundry, enough deviation occurred to indicate the need
 for continuing education on pesticide hazards.

 Abstract:  A survey of farm families in five states was conducted to determine
 current attitudes and practices regarding the removal of pesticides from
 contaminated clothing. There was little evidence that respondents to this
 survey have been obtaining available information regarding the care of
 pesticide contaminated clothing. Even when the launderers did receive such
 information, many did not adopt the recommended procedures with the exception
 of storing and washing pesticide contaminated clothing separately and using
 hot or warm water for washing. Families in which the launderer was under 30 in
 age were least likely to obtain and use recommended care procedures. The
 relatively low rate of information requisition and use, especially among
 younger respondents, suggests a need for better information delivery systems
 as well as more compelling appeals regarding the importance of using the
 information once it has been received.

 Abstract:  Contamination of ground water from agricultural sources has been
 documented in a majority of the contiguous United States. In this study, we
 examine the potential for voluntary adoption of management practices that
 reduce risk of ground water contamination and discuss how farm operators'
 attitudes regarding the environment might affect the success of voluntary
 programs. Farmers' behavior and attitudes in Rockingham County, Virginia, and
 Big Spring Basin, Iowa, reveal that both groups consider the ground water
 issue to be a serious problem to which they are contributing. This awareness
 is a significant first step in prompting consideration of management practices
 that reduce the threat to ground water quality. We also found that the worst
 offenders"--that is, farmers applying nitrogen well above agronomic
 recommendations--were those with the least concern about the problem. If major
 shifts in farming practices are to occur voluntarily, major incentives or
 disincentives are needed Even though the concern about ground water quality is
 high, the documented risks perceived by farmers are not strongly convincing.
 The economic incentives for change are questionable at best. Voluntary
 adoption of best management practices is only one of several policy options.
 Ultimately, policies designed to reduce ground water contamination may need a
 mix of strategies, including economic incentives and disincentives, zoning and
 land use restrictions, environmental regulations, and bans on agricultural
 chemicals.

 Abstract:  The paper acknowledges the need for pesticide usage to boost
 agricultural production and for disease control in Uganda and elsewhere in
 Africa. But drawing from some instances of pesticide pollution so far reported
 in Africa, the paper highlights the need for cautious use of the chemicals in
 order to avoid further pollution. The need for using pesticides within the
 framework of integrated pest management (IPM) is presented, but also presented
 are results of a survey which indicates that quantities of pesticides used
 continue to increase, and that the attitudes of farmers and extension workers
 are still heavily weighted in favour of pesticide application alone. A number
 of options that could be taken to inculcate IPM ideals and concepts among the
 people are presented, emphasizing education and training, not only for farmers
 and extension workers, but also for the youths most of whom are destined to
 become the future farmers.

 Abstract:  This paper analyzes the potential for using a market to shift water
 from irrigation to hydropower use in periods of low river flow in the Snake
 River basin of Idaho. The water could be used for irrigation in most years but
 in dry years would be very valuable for firming up electric power supplies. A
 model of crop growth and water use was utilized to estimate farmer responses
 and resulting farm income losses due to market-restricted irrigation water
 supplies. Results indicate that estimated hydropower benefits are ten times
 greater than estimated lost farm income, so the proposed water market should
 be economically feasible.

 Abstract:  The professional pest control industry feels that the public's
 concerns about urban/suburban pesticide use must be taken seriously. The
 industry is addressing these concerns by using the well-established concept of
 risk communication--an approach that consists of giving the public open and
 complete information about pesticide applications. As part of the industry's
 risk communication program, it is promoting its support of reasonable and
 responsible legislation, including a requirement for notifying the public when
 pesticides are applied. It is also pursuing regulations requiring additional
 education for all pesticide applicators. The industry believes this approach
 will lessen the public's fear of pesticides, and make them feel more
 comfortable about urban/suburban pesticide use.

 Abstract:  While the hazards of chronic environmental pollution remain
 unclear, people are making decisions about their exposure to pollution and its
 possible effects on their health. To compare people's concerns about
 environmental problems, a systematic, stratified sample was surveyed. The
 sample was made up of residents, ages 25 through 74 years, of three areas of
 New York State. The three areas were western New York, with a high density of
 toxic dump sites; Long island, with a major shallow ground water aquifer; and
 the remainder of the State, excluding New York City, as a comparison area. The
 sampling list was obtained from records of licensed drivers of the New York
 State Department of Motor Vehicles. A 66 percent response rate was obtained to
 the mailed survey. As expected, most concerns were greater for western New
 York and Long Island, the two areas with highest threat potential for exposure
 or contamination, than for the comparison area. The single exception was that
 no regional differences were noted for concerns about environmental pollution
 and contamination. All concerns were associated with perceived distance
 between one's residence and a source of potential exposure. Regardless of
 region, women were more concerned than men about exposures, pollution, and
 related health effects. No sex differences, however, were noted for economic
 concerns.

 Abstract:  This paper reviews the risk potential of pulp mill pollutants to
 humans, risk abatement strategies adopted by the pulp and paper industry and
 their socio-enviro-economic implications. The deleterious impact of
 dioxin-exposure on experimental animals is well documented worldwide. Though
 their impact on humans is yet to be assessed. It is part of today's
 conventional wisdom that the reduction and possible elimination of the major
 sources of dioxin would be, pragmatically and economically, more
 environmentally acceptable.

 Abstract:  This paper develops a Bayesian framework for discussing the role of
 information in the design of non-point-source pollution control mechanisms. An
 ambient concentration tax is examined, allowing for spatial transport among
 multiple zones. Imposition of the tax requires costly measurement of
 concentrations in selected zones, and the selection of zones for measurement
 must be undertaken without perfect information regarding several parameters of
 the problem. Potentially crucial information issues discussed include: (a) the
 impact of asymmetric priors regarding fate and transport. (b) the cost of
 measuring ambient concentration, and (c) the optimal acquisition of
 information regarding fate and transport.

 Abstract:  Who do farmers trust? Irrigators in the High Plains are confronted
 with a wide range of information source's with respect to water-saving
 practices. From a survey of 709 irrigators in 10 countries the most widely
 accepted sources are identified, regional variability or information is
 examined, the role of irrigator characteristics on source selection is
 determined, and the level of association between adoption and source
 preference is analyzed. Differences in irrigators' reliance on specific
 sources are more associated with location than irrigator characteristics.
 Information sources viewed as important by many irrigators frequently
 influence adoption decisions less than sources having a wide range of
 preference among irrigators. Mass media and advisor-oriented sources are much
 more significantly linked to adoption than inter-personal sources such as
 friends and neighbors. The three sources that best discriminate adoption
 behavior are private agricultural consulting firms, university research
 stations, and trade magazines.

 Abstract:  This paper studies the production and attendant soil depletion
 choices of a risk-aversion farmer in two related models. The first is a
 two-date model with uncertainty in both production and end-of-period land
 price. The second is three-date model in which production and consumption
 choices are made in both periods, but there is uncertainty only in the second
 period. In both models, the paper identifies plausible conditions under which
 a higher level of initial farmer wealth and/or a lower level of production and
 land risk lead to a lower level of output and, as a result, a lower level of
 output-induced soil depletion.

 Abstract:  This study developed an intertemporal profit function to determine
 optimal conservation adoption strategies under alternative scenarios with
 respect to crop prices, relative yields, discount rates, and other
 assumptions. Special emphasis was placed on determining from the analysis when
 the switchover from conventional to soil-conserving practices should take
 place. Technological change was incorporated by allowing crop yields to vary
 over time. Our analysis thus provides a new, more precise measurement of the
 cumulative net benefit differential. The optimal period for switchover from
 conventional to soil-conserving practices was found to vary depending on the
 assumptions made about corn Prices and discount rates. Empirical results were
 based on an erosion damage function (EDF) for Western Kentucky corn
 production.

 Abstract:  In this paper, data from a 1991 survey of Georgia residents were
 used to study people's willingness to pay (WTP) for improvements in drinking
 water quality and people's perceptions of potential groundwater contamination.
 Results showed that 27% of the respondents served by public water supplies
 rated drinking water quality as poor, and 23% were uncertain about their
 drinking water quality. The contingent valuation method was used to estimate
 WTP using a checklist format. The median estimated WTP was $5.49 per month
 above their current water bills for people on public systems and $7.38 for
 those using private wells, after rejecting outliers and using the maximum
 likelihood method. The aggregate WTP for all of Georgia was estimated to be
 about $111.5 million per year for public water users and 42.3 million per year
 for private well owners. This aggregate WTP can serve as an estimate of
 benefits to consumers from improvements in drinking water quality statewide.
