Economic benefits

Cost of pesticides reduced. The cost of crop protection chemicals, now running into billions of dollars annually, would be greatly reduced and, in some corps, largely eliminated.

Cost of pesticide application reduced. The same is true of the costs of application of crop protection chemicals.

Increased yields of a cheaper and healthier product. The overall effect of a multiplicity of plant breeding clubs would be improved yields of crop products that were both cheaper to produce and healthier for the consumers.
