This paper presents a novel approach for generating information for regulatory and policy analysis, based on farmers' adoption of weed control technology. A simulation model, WISH, is used to generate cost and risk information on 258 weed control strategies. The environmental policies simulated are bans on triazines and broadcast application technology.
