Benefits to growers, chemical companies and consumers were estimated for eight case studies of hypothetical research projects across four categories of herbicide-use research and development (R&D)... Any possibility of private investment by chemical companies can be discounted for the types of herbicide use R&D evaluated in this study because the ex ante benefit:cost ratio that accounts for risk about R&D outcomes would be even smaller...

In the base case of a class 8 header the total cost of harvesting is $13.22/tonne (from table 2) plus $3/tonne to increase harvest efficiency by 30% with a chaser bin for a total of $16.22/t...
